Are you a country fan and looking for something fun to do this summer? If so, then The Country Fest is the place for you. It’s a three-day music festival full of great music, great food and a great time. 


The Country Fest is held June 14-16 at Clay’s Park camping center in Canal Fulton, Ohio. The festival is held over three days with summer fun during the day including a water park, paintball and go-carts and country music at night. 


The line-up includes main acts: Kellie Pickler, Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan over the three days. There are also many opening acts. Thursday includes: Rodney Atkins, Gary Allan and Summer Sweeney. Friday and Saturday include: Randy Houser, Craig Campbell and Justin Moore. 


All of these performances are available for a fairly affordable price. A three-day pass costs $75 and a three-day pass with primitive camping costs $150, which includes the water park. There are also tickets available for one-day concerts and VIP passes. 


The Country Fest is sponsored by Pepsi, WQMX, Music Farm and the country dance club The Dusty Armadillo. A portion of all the tickets goes to Pathway Caring for Children, an adoption and foster home center based out of Canton, Ohio. It is a great opportunity to enjoy music and help children in need. 


For anyone looking for something fun to do over the summer, the Country Fest might be the place for you. It is an easy way to have fun with friends and go camping, while getting to see live performances by some of country music’s top artists.
