2nd Annual Heart of County Celebration
August 26 • 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm• $15 – $30
If Kid Rock and the rest of the gang from the Bi-Mart Willamette Country Music Festival have left you wanting more country music and barbeque, A Family for Every Child’s 2nd Annual Heart of Country Celebration will keep you satiated — both musically and food-wise. This year, the nonprofit mixes country music and barbeque. The event will serve as a barbeque battle, where cooks will face off to lay claim to best barbequed ribs, pork and chicken. And it’s not a cook off without a bacon side dish division. Haywire, Outlaw Shine, Dusty Herd and Jeri James will perform, allowing you to dance off those barbequed calories while supporting A Family for Every Child, a nonprofit that aims to find permanent families for every waiting foster child.
The Heart of Country Celebration is 3 to 8 pm Sunday, Aug. 26 at Dorris Ranch, Springfield. Tickets are $15 for youth and $30 for adults. — Henry Houston
