Catch the Fever
Jun 26, 2014
It’s been almost twenty years since Fairview, Alberta’s Milner brothers decided to turn their dream into reality and put together the largest country music jamboree the Peace County has ever seen. Since then the organizers have changed along with the name, but the passion and fever behind the dream still remains. Now’s your chance to catch that fever — Bud Country Fever!
Since 1995, Bud Country Fever has been a country music landmark in the Peace Region and this year is no different. From June 27-29, you can take in all the country music your heart desires at Evergreen Park.
With such a good time to be had, you might feel a bit guilty — but don’t! While you’re revelling in the spectacular music, you can feel good knowing that the thousands of dollars Bud Country Fever takes in goes right back to the community in the form of donations to local charities. Bud Country Fever is truly a community affair, the enthusiasm and dedication of the people who come back year after year to enjoy the festival are proof of this.
Speaking of enjoying, this year’s line-up includes something for everyone. Whether vocalist/fiddle player Mackenzie Porter is up your alley, the Peace Region’s own TJ Ruckus strikes your fancy, or you prefer the “hillbilly jedi” stylings of Big and Rich, Bud Country Fever will get your temperature rising.
If those performers don’t get you feeling the heat, maybe The Road Hammers, Doc Walker, Aaron Tippin, The Bellamy Brothers and Creedence Clearwater Revisited will! These are just some of the hot acts that will be performing. For a complete schedule and ticket information, please visit www.budcountryfever.com
This weekend, it doesn’t matter where you’re from or what music you listen to, everything will be coming up country. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the upcoming 147th birthday of this Country than a weekend full of country music!
