About Country Summer
Welcome to Country Summer — Northern California’s biggest country music festival and Sonoma County’s biggest party.
In 2016, Country Summer attracted more than 27,000 fans from 35 states and four foreign countries. Recognized by Nash Country Weekly, Taste of Country, Wide Open Country and Country Living Magazine, Country Summer is today established as a renowned country music destination event.
Since its inauguration in 2014, Country Summer has been bigger and better every year with a lineup of country music superstars and big name entertainers.
The 5-acre Carnival field at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in beautiful Santa Rosa sets the scene with spectacular video walls and state-of-the-art staging and sound. Between headliners on the Santa Rosa Stage, a secondary stage features musicians and groups from the local area.
While performances by country music artists are the main attraction, great festivals are more than great music. Country Summer is a big country music celebration with Western-themed attractions, a variety of 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. We look forward to seeing you again in 2017!
