THE PARTY STARTS IN
Canada’s best damn country music artists are coming to Prince George for a festival, suitably titled: The Best Damn MusicFest! The event
will be held at the Prince George Exhibition Grounds next to the CN Centre and will now take place on Friday August 12th and Saturday August 13th, 2022,
The festival will feature CCMA and Juno Award Winning headliners Brett Kissel and Dean Brody on Friday and Saturday night respectively; and will include artists: Hunter Brothers, Corb Lund, The Washboard Union, Aaron Pritchett, The Chris Goodwin Band, Kym Gouchie & Northern Lights, and Rick Stavely.
After months and months of planning, we know that we’re bringing our festival to life in a much bigger and better way and we’re really looking forward to welcoming fans from across the north who are well deserving of a big country party!
Foodie fans should prepare for one of the biggest and most diverse selections of food trucks! Fan favourites like Kelly O’Bryan’s, Veg Head, Mini-Donuts, Island Flava, Open Air Café, Lemon Heaven, and many more – over 15 options will be onsite for the weekend!
The Treasure Cove Casino will also be onsite with big games like giant Jenga, giant beer pong, corn hole, and more giving fans a chance to win prizes, including free slot play money at the casino! And it’s not just fun and games – For a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters Northern BC, Festival goers can plan on getting back to their hotel or home safely thanks to a newly forged partnership with the local charity, as well as thanks to our Safe Ride Sponsor Tourism Prince George!
