Canadians have a lot to celebrate this summer! A new country festival is coming to town — literally! Just outside the huge urban center of Toronto, Ontario lies the very small town of Bowmanville – a place where many country music stars are likely to feel most comfortable and small-town Canadians can see some of country’s hottest acts such as Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, and Alabama!
The festival, called the Boots and Hearts Festival, is designed to bring the biggest acts to small-town Canadians that often have to travel to far parts to see their favorite acts. But the 750-acre Canadian Tire Motorsport Park that’s to be the location of the festival is likely to take in people from all over the country — and the United States! Along with Underwood and McGraw, the festival will host 20 global and Canadian artists including Kid Rock, Jason McCoy, Dallas Smith, and more.
The festival will be held from August 10 — 12 and many different types of tickets are available. Festival passes will allow fans to take in the shows, have access to all the different vendors, the kids’ play areas and petting zoos, the Farmer’s Market, and more. Those who would like to camp out the entire weekend can pay an additional fee for it; while those who would like privileges such as private restrooms and reserved seating can purchase VIP packages.
Republic Live is producing the event and in a statement Executive Director Shannon McNevan, said, “Canadians deserve a festival where they can enjoy the very best country music has to offer and camp with their friends and family without having to travel to the United States. We have three full days of country music on two stages, tailgates, barbecues, and all kinds of activities throughout the day to keep fans entertained. And just when other music festivals call it a night, Boots and Hearts will ramp things up nightly with after-parties. It’s definitely shaping up to be the party of the summer.”
