Country music festival returns to Antelope in August
A lineup of all Oregon artists is again slated for the 28th annual Raised Country Music Festival to be held on the lawn of the Antelope Church on Sunday, Aug. 4.
Don't miss the Raised Country Music Festival kickoff at 1 p.m., when Nashville recording artist Olivia Harms will take the stage. Harms has been writing songs and singing since the age of 12, and has opened for Diamond Rio, Dan and Shay, and Mark Chesnutt, Old Dominion and more.
Following Harms is an authentic chuckwagon barbecue by Rod McGuire of Paradise Rose. Then relax and enjoy the incredible harmonies and bluegrass sounds of Central Oregon's Mud Springs Gospel Band, while the kids stay busy with the ranch animal petting area and face painting.
Oregon's award-winning singer/songwriter, Joni Harms, who is internationally known, will be returning to the festival as well this year for this annual afternoon of amazing Western music. Joni Harms has been recognized numerous times by the Academy of Western Artists as Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and for Song of the Year. In 2019, Joni Harms received Album of the Year with "Lucky 13."
There is no entry fee to attend the Raised Country Music Festival, although donations will be accepted. The adult barbecue meal will be served for $13 per person, with additional children's barbecue options available for purchase. Desserts are $3. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs, as seating is limited.
A full schedule of events includes Olivia Harms at 1 p.m., a chuck wagon barbecue by Paradise Rose and ranch animal petting zoo and face painting at 2 p.m., Mud Springs Gospel Band at 3 p.m. and Joni Harms at 3:45 p.m.
