We're very excited to start a new music series every Saturday at The legendary Columbia music arena located in Portsmouth, Ohio.

 Bringing live music to the entire community, we're showcasing all age events that feature 2-3 bands nightly. This is a great way to bring the community together every weekend and support local musicians. The Colombia music arena is an indoor venue with a large stage, air-conditioning, table and stadium seating, and a full bar. Come rock out with other great bands this summer and build your fan base at the Colombia music arena.
