Grab your cowboy hats and beachwear, and get your ‘twang on for the first ever Block Island Country Fest at Ballard’s!
It’s no secret that Ballard’s knows how to throw the #ultimatesummerparty all season long with live music every day. But how about a full day of everything country music, hot sun, and the cool breeze of the beach? If you’re a country music fan, Ballard’s is the place to be on Thursday, July 7th.
New England Country music lovers have no doubt made the trek to Gillette Stadium to see Kenny Chesney on tour. You know the drill: sit in traffic for hours, suffer through the rigamarole of parking, schlepping across the hot tar, pushing through the crowds to find your seat, then baking in the hot sun, while you’re stuck in that seat. Well, get ready to experience a Country Fest like no other! How about a leisurely ride on the ferry enjoying a cocktail instead of sitting in traffic? How about a quick 3 minute stroll with the ocean breeze cooling you off instead of trudging across a hot parking lot? How about Dancing the day away on the beach(!) instead of being stuck in your chair? Mark your calendars, because Ballard’s is delivering the premiere Block Island Country Fest. Did we mention there’s no cover charge (ever)?
For the first time ever, Ballard’s is bringing the country music party to Block Island. Rock on to the classic country sounds delivered by Cash is King as they take to the stage from 2pm-6pm . Cash is King is a full Re-Creation band that brings you back to the experience of Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Three with June Carter in their prime. But the fun doesn’t stop there! You’ve got your pick of the top 3 country music stations in the area:
- CAT Country on site from 12pm-6pm
- Country 92.5 on site from 12pm-6pm with host Broadway
- WCTY 97.7 on site
They’ll be playing the top country hits of today bringing you the #ultimatesummerparty straight from the beach. Fun in the sun with prizes, cocktails from the tiki bars, and a great selection of food when you need a snack. Need a break from all the fun? You’re on the beach! Sit in the sand, lounge on the patio, or take a quick dip in the ocean to cool off. Try to get that at Gillette Stadium!
So grab your bikinis, cowboy hats and sunblock! Get here early, enjoy the beach, grab some cocktails, then get ready for the foot-stomping, yeehaw hollerin’ #ultimatesummerparty. Block Island Country Fest at Ballard’s…it’s the only place to be…Ballard’s has it all!
