Welcome to Country Summer — Northern California’s biggest country music festival and Sonoma County’s biggest party. In 2019, Country Summer attracted more than 30,000 fans representing five countries. Saturday, headlined by Tim McGraw on June 15, was a sell-out and the biggest music event in Sonoma County history.
Adding to its notoriety, Country Summer was voted Best Annual Festival and Best Music Festival or Series in The Press Democrat Readers Choice 2019 awards. Recognized by sources such as Nash Country Weekly, Taste of Country and Wide Open Country, Country Summer is well-established as a nationally 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 Northern California sets the scene with spectacular video walls and state-of-the-art staging and sound. Between headliners on the Chevy Silverado Stage, a secondary stage features up and coming musicians from the regional 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 interactive activities, a variety of culinary delights and an array of libations from Bud Light products 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 Amaturo 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 2020!
