We are 30 days away from Countryfest 2011 and we are busy getting everything ready. There is still a limited amount of weekend passes available, so be sure to call us at 1-800-361-7300 to get yours before they are gone!!
This years’ snow fall and rain has not affected the condition of the festival grounds. We have added more Back 40 camping this year and we are busy building roads, setting up fencing and getting the land ready for campers.
Our site crew is making renovations to the Upper souvenir/autograph building. We are remodeling the old Hilltop Stage to make a new store front to increase the display space and make it more appealing for patrons.
NEW to Countryfest this year is the Countryfest Sports Bar! The Sports Bar will be in the Countryfest Mini Mall, and will be host to many events throughout the weekend. Texas Hold ‘Em Poker will now be in the Sports Bars, along with a 6 in 1 sports system that includes golf, hockey, soccer, baseball, basketball and football. The Sports Bar will be a great place to come and relax and take a break from the heat! There will be something for everyone! Watch a CFL game (weekend schedule listed below) or just catch up on the scores on our 5 TV screens.
Thursday, June 30 BC Lions vs. Montreal Alouettes
