The Cottage Event Center in Roanoke will resume its schedule of entertainment September 25 using a more social distancing friendly floorplan. The facility’s first event since the COVID-19 shut down will feature Country Rock band Sugar Shot with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Roanoke Public Library.

Due to COVID-19 precautions the number of available seats will be reduced. Smaller tables will be placed with more room around the venue to allow for social distancing and guests are encouraged to wear a mask when entering and whenever not in their seat.
