The Johnny Cash Country Music Festival

Stanthorpe, Southern Downs Area

11 November 2017 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$35 to AU$35

This event celebrates the fact that Johnny Cash and wife June Carter visited Stanthorpe regularly during the 1980s and 1990s. But not for music!

They came to visit an American friend of Johnny's, who had moved to Australia for family reasons related to his Australian wife. Johnny and June grew to love this small country town, its people and the district, hence their regular visits.

The Festival, to be staged on November 11, will feature one of Australia's leading Johnny Cash Tribute bands, supported by a line-up of three widely renowned Country and Rockabilly bands.

The Stanthorpe Showground venue is long experienced in major events, including the world famous Stanthorpe Apple and Grape Festival.

Pre-concert activities will be held in the town centre, and include a Best Dressed Man In Black competition, theme-related music, parades and much else in a family oriented day out.

The Festival's long-term objective is to become annual, doing for Stanthorpe what the Elvis Presley Festival has achieved for the small New South Wales town of Parkes, contributing hugely to the local economy.

They are confident they will achieve their objective as Johnny Cash remains massively popular to this day.
