Night in the Country has been working non-stop to find a way to provide our fans with the festival experience they expect from us without putting their health, the health of their loved ones, or their communities at risk. However, with the current outlook of the ongoing pandemic as well as the safety restrictions that are in place, we no longer have a choice on whether or not we can move forward. Regretfully, Night in the Country 2020 is canceled. The festival will return July 22nd through 24th, 2021.

2021 is our 20th year celebration. We are taking this time to make sure it will be absolutely unforgettable. 2021 will be the first time ever we will feature not two, but three nights of music. We are also adding new in-festival events and experiences, plus we are working to enhance some of our fans’ favorite elements of Night in the Country. As for the lineup, we are currently working with our 2020 artists to secure as many of them as possible for next year’s festival.

Night in the Country is more than Northern Nevada’s premier country music festival. It is the largest fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Mason Valley. When you attend the festival, you are helping children in the communities of Yerington, Silver Springs, Dayton, and Hawthorne, Nevada. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Mason Valley provide safety, support, meals, athletics and the arts to more than 500 children every single day.
