Everyone feels a “little bit country” when Big Valley Jamboree rolls in to town! Cowboy hats and boots are adorned for this outdoor country music extravaganza, where a lively crowd enjoys concerts from top country musicians. This year, Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, and Alan Jackson headline the four-day series of performances.
Big Valley Jamboree takes place in Camrose, AB (about a one-hour drive from Edmonton) August 1 -4, 2013. Visit www.bigvalleyjamboree.com for tickets and more information.
