This was the first year that Heart of Country Festival was free and open to the public and, depsite the rainy weather, our turn out was great! We had an estimated 200 guests, 5 bands, 7 food trucks, and over 30 local vendors. Overall, we raised almost $9,000 from our sponsors, generous donations, and raffle tickets sales!

2019 Sponsors and donors
Last year, we had many sponsors, food trucks, vendors, artists, and people involved with this big event!
We had nearly 300 Princesses attend the event, and we truly could not have done it without our wonderful volunteers! We were amazed and incredibly thankful for the dedication, energy, and hard work that every volunteer put into making the day run smoothly! From making sandwiches to curling hair, setting up the venue to helping the princesses find dresses, each and every volunteer made a tremendous impact, and helped make the day magical!
