Last year's Swamp Stomp at the Tallahassee Museum

The pandemic forced the cancellation of the Tallahassee Museum's Pioneer Breakfast along with the Jazz and Blues Festival this year. But the Museum's Swamp Stomp will be held later this month with special steps taken to keep everyone safe.
The Museum's Kerri Whitfield said this it just wouldn't be summer in Tallahassee without this particular happening.

"Swamp Stomp, this is our 42nd year. We've got quite a history with the community in order to provide fun events like this one."

And to keep Swamp Stomp fun, even in the midst of the coronavirus, Whitfield said both the admission and musical lineup will be limited.

"We're encouraging advance ticket sales. We'll actually be marking different seating areas. We'll have ushers greeting ticket holders as they arrive and guide them to a specific seating area."

Of course social distancing and mask-wearing will be necessary. Six of the area's top musical groups and solo acts will be featured: Hot Tamale, Dylan "Rag Picker" Allen, t Mimi Hearn, Brian Bowen, Belle and the Band, and Del Suggs , It all happens at the Tallahassee Museum, Saturday, July eleventh starting at 4 p.m.
