 “Wow! The memories that have come back working on this year’s line-up have been amazing! With many more spots to fill, I believe our 30th birthday will be one to remember for both past and present Countryfest fans” says Rob Waloschuk, General Manager for Dauphin’s Countryfest. 

We are kicking off our 30th year with a “MAJOR” community gift. Dauphin’s Countryfest is giving away a free concert to a non-profit organization to help raise funds for their community.

As a way to give back, and to celebrate our 30th birthday, we want YOUR TOWN to host our pre-birthday PARTY! Dauphin’s Countryfest will provide one lucky Manitoba community with an opportunity to host a country music concert, headlined by Canadian country music legend CHARLIE MAJOR, in the spring of 2019. Dauphin’s Countryfest provides the concert, and the lucky community gets to retain all of the proceeds for their organization.

All submission details can be found at OurBirthdayYourParty.ca
The contest opens to all eligible applicants at 9:00 am (CT) on November 14, 2018 and closes at 11:59 pm (CT) on March 31, 2019.

“Leaving your 20’s behind is an exciting milestone that deserves to be celebrated. The Board of Directors and the staff have been having so much fun planning all the ways to celebrate 30 years of running Manitoba’s largest country music festival. We are thrilled to finally be sharing some of our plans with you.” says Ann Ransom, President of Dauphin’s Countryfest, adding “It’s our birthday, but it’s everybody’s party!”

Sept 17, 2018 (Dauphin, MB) – Dauphin’s Countryfest, Canada’s longest running country music festival, is pleased to announce that Jason Aldean is booked to perform on the Club Regent Casino and Event Centre Main Stage Saturday night of Countryfest 2019!

The two-time, reigning and current ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean has helped define the genre’s 21st century, which plays into his 19 Number One hits, more than 15 million total album sales and dozens of sold-out stadium shows. Continuing on that momentum, Aldean’s last three albums each bowed at Number One on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart, and all seven of his previous LPs have achieved Platinum certification or better. Aldean’s wide-open approach has made him a live-show favorite and we cannot be more excited to have him performing on our stage again!

“I am more than thrilled to be bringing Jason back to Countryfest after just over 9 years and over a dozen Number One hits since his last appearance” says Countryfest General Manager Rob Waloschuk, adding “It’s our 30th birthday and along with the previously announced Brothers Osborne, Old Dominion, and now Jason Aldean, plans are continuing to make 2019 a birthday to remember. Stay tuned for even more announcements, including some very special events taking place all year.”
