Get the Fever – Bud Country Fever, June 28th-30th
Friday, June 14, 2013
For over 15 years now, we have been a proud sponsor of the
Bud Country Fever
, the annual country music festival which has become the summer event not to miss here in Peace Country. Each year, some of the best country artist musicians from all across North America and the world descend on Grande Prairie for a weekend of amazing concerts, live music, and lots of proper Albertan summer fun.
The Bud Country Fever Music Festival began back in 1995 as the dream of two brothers who wanted to put together the biggest collection of country music talent ever seen in Grand Prairie and northern Alberta. They gave it the name Bud Country Jamboree and featured amazing local talent as well as internationally renowned country musicians from across the globe. Their dream, determination and desire to build community development jumpstarted the music festival which has grown into the three-day event of the summer we know today.
Since then, Bud Country Fever has seen its share of name changes, show runners, and tons of bands, but one thing has always remained the same: the sense of community, local pride and giving back to it on which the festival was founded on. Each year, thousands of dollars from the festival have been donated to help many local charities of all sizes, and volunteers from all over Peace Country band together to help make this one of the most special events of the summer.
For years, Bud Country Fever has featured up and coming talent that have often become the stars of the future. This year, the festival is proud to present such exciting headliners as
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
, Emerson Drive, Dean Brody, Joe Nichols, and Wynonna & the Big Noise, as well as plenty of other great country music bands. Get the full festival schedule
and start your planning!
Located at Evergreen Park, the three-day event kicks off June 28th and runs through the 30th inclusively. Tickets are available online and begin at $109 for an Adult Day Pass. Call 780-538-0387 and reserve yours today. This event is guaranteed to sell out so be sure to grab yours before they’re all gone!
If camping isn’t your idea of how to spend your festival weekend, be sure to check out our
affordable, comfortable accommodations
. After all, there’s nothing quite like a hot shower and a cozy bed to curl up in after a long day of dancing your heart out and singing along to some of the best country music Alberta has to offer this summer season.
