New attractions unveiled for 32nd Annual Country Fest in Cadott

Cadott (WQOW) – Chippewa Valley music festivals have begun, and this weekend, thousands will be heading out to Cadott’s Country Fest.

Hundreds of campers have already checked in since Sunday. Organizers are finishing up last-minute touches before the concert gates officially open on Thursday. Those last-minute touches are bringing in some changes.

"Every year we try to do something different," said Abby Maliszewski, PR & community events coordinator of Country Fest. "We’re always trying to bring new and exciting things for fans. Things to see, things to do at Country Fest. So, new this year, the biggest thing that we are doing is opening up Northern Lights Woods, and that’s a half-mile of walking trail over by the north campgrounds. Anyone with a camp access pass and a concert wristband can go sneak in those woods and check out all of the cool installations we have."

Other new changes include switching Country Fest to a three-day celebration instead of four. Organizers reached out to their fans and a majority agreed on cutting down a day. The three-day event kept the music budget, so lack of music is not a concern. Country Fest will also have a new national act stage called ‘Crossroads’. It acts as a more interactive and intimate space for fans and performers.
