Bud Country Fever Cancelled

The community has supported Bud Country Fever for many years and it is with extreme disappointment and regret that we share with you that Bud Country Fever will not continue in 2016.

With the current state of the economy affecting so many industries, the US dollar, and despite our concentrated efforts to secure partnerships, and sponsorships we are unable to deliver the same level of an event which the community has been accustom to.

Over the past 20 years there has been an endless amount of hours invested by volunteers and committees and support groups.  These wonderful people along with our sponsors, entertainers, and loyal patrons have all played an enormous roll in building Bud Country Fever into the largest music festival in Northern Alberta at Evergreen Park.

Sibylle and I would like to personally thank each and every one who has purchased a ticket, volunteered, invested in the show or who has participated in some way to these successes over the past 20 years.

About Bud Country Fever:

Bud Country Fever has provided many memorable country music experiences over the years, contributed thousands of dollars to local community not for profits, provided a platform for local artists to showcase their talents and most of all provided a safe family weekend that became an integrated and anticipated event in our community.
