About Country Summer
Welcome to Country Summer — Northern California’s premier country music festival and Sonoma County’s biggest party. In its inaugural year, beautiful Santa Rosa attracted 17,000 country music fans from all across the nation. In 2014, Saturday’s event was a sell-out!
Country Summer 2015 was even bigger and better with a lineup of country music superstars and big name entertainers. By popular demand, capacity was increased to 11,000 per day. The 5-acre Carnival field at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds sets the scene with spectacular video walls and state-of-the-art staging and sound. New in 2015 was an expanded Food Court and, between headliners on the Montgomery Village Stage, a secondary stage featuring local musicians and groups from around Nor Cal.
While performances by country music artists are the main attraction, great festivals are more than great music. Country Summer is a destination country celebration with Western-themed attractions, country-inspired culinary delights and an array of libations from Bud Light for beer drinkers to a wide selection of wine and spirits to please every palate.
Country Summer is a collaboration between Impact Entertainment, Sports & Event Marketing and Sonoma Media Group — local owner of Froggy 92.9 and other leading radio stations serving Sonoma County. Alan Jacoby, executive producer of Impact Entertainment, and Lawrence Amaturo, owner of Sonoma Media Group had a vision to create an annual country music spectacular that would be the foremost of its kind in Northern California.
The vision became a reality in 2014 and an even more colossal entertainment experience for fans of all ages in 2015. We look forward to seeing you again in 2016!
