The Central Ohio Bluegrass Association (COBA) formed in the Columbus, Ohio area in 1978 and was later chartered as a non-profit organization.
The goal of the club--originally, to promote and preserve Bluegrass in the central Ohio area--has now expanded to include all of Ohio.
Among other activities, COBA sponsors:
- One summer festival each year with over 1,200 attending, and growing each year.
- In-Door Concerts: COBA Meetings, held the first Saturday of each month, November through May featuring a COBA band and a jam session for a wonderful evening of bluegrass music, good company and good home cooking.
