CCMA Country Music Awards Events
• CCMA Rock’n Country Cabaret ($25.00 + fees)
Co-presented by CISN Country 103.9, Big Valley Jamboree & The Ranch
Billed as a night for the 18+ crowd, this event will take place on the same stage as CCMA FanFest and will alternate local talent with well-known, national country acts. This is a public event; however, delegates will have access with their delegate badges. Tickets for public will go on sale through Ticketmaster in June 2013.
• Jiffy Lube FanFest (Free)
Avid country music fans will be delighted by the stellar line up boasted at Jiffy Lube FanFest, a free larger than life festival held at the Shaw Conference Centre in honour of our biggest and brightest country music stars and the fans that hoisted them to the top. FanFest itself has something for every level of fan from the die-hard album-wielding devotees to the entry-level music lovers who are looking for something new. Between song laden performances, merch stands, food vendors and numerous autograph and photo opportunities, this is a must attend event for even the most reserved of country music fans. CCMA FanFest is open to all, free of charge!
• CCMA Awards Show
The final installment in our series of Awards ceremonies is also the biggest; the televised CCMA Awards Show brings together the most current names in Canadian country music for an evening full of award presentations, star performances and special guest presenters with lots of ‘moments’ to remind you of what you’re celebrating. Catch a glimpse of your favourite stars as they attend the ceremony or take the stage to perform and hopefully accept an award. This is the moment everyone has been waiting for, so take a seat and enjoy the show! This event is open to the public, with tickets available online and through all Ticketmaster locations.
