The Country Thunder Music Festival (formerly known as the Craven Country Jamboree) has been a sponsor of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League for a number of years and now that the hockey season is officially over it is time for the SJHL’s fans to reciprocate their support for one of the premiere summer events scheduled for July 13-16 at Craven, Sask.
The line-up for the for the first-ever Country Thunder event is star-studded with Blake Shelton headlining the July 14 schedule followed by Toby Keith on July 15 and Keith Urban closing down the extravaganza on July 16.
Other performers include Old Dominion, Dallas Smith and Terri Clark, among others, with the Road Hammers opening the festivities on July 13.
Tickets for the festival are $99 for single-day entrance or $185 for a four-day pass. Camping is once again available at the site, but spaces are expected to be sold out early so make sure and check for availability.
