Ol’ MacDonald’s Resort has a packed line-up of musical performances

Weekend country music festival set for Sept. 6th-8th

By Jessica Jones BLACK PRESS

The stages are being set for Ol’MacDonald’s sixth annual music festival, featuring a full lineup of country musical performances all weekend long, Sept. 6th-8th.

“You are not going to see Pam Tillis, a big headliner, anywhere else but here,” said Kevin MacDonald, co-owner of Ol’MacDonald’s Resort, which is located on the south shore of Buffalo Lake.

“It should be a lot of fun,” MacDonald said, mentioning that the setting for the music festival is intimate and geared towards an “older crowd.”

“It’s small and we like it that way and this is some of my favourite kind of country music, the older country music,” MacDonald said.

Music festival goers have the option of purchasing full weekend passes or one-day passes, with camping available. The campground will be closed to the general public and is only available with the purchase of festival tickets.

“We think this festival is one of the best,” MacDonald said. “And a lot of people have told us that they think it’s the best in Alberta.”

The festival kicks off at 3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6th with three performances on the main stage, followed by a performance in the beer gardens.

On Saturday, Sept. 7th performances start at 12-noon with award-winning, country music singer-songwriter Pam Tillis hitting the stage at 7:30 p.m.

MacDonald says that the performers are “quite gracious” at Ol’MacDonald’s venue, some signing autographs and talking directly with festival goers.

Sunday, Sept 8th features Cowboy Church by Miriam Dreher staring at 10:30 a.m.

The festival also features many food options with a steak dinner on Saturday night, food vendors, as well as food trucks.

A full lineup of performance, times, and information are posted to Ol’MacDonald’s web site at olmacdonalds.com. Tickets can be purchased by calling 403-742-6603.
