I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to Providence Bay, June 10, 11, & 12, 2016.
Bluegrass In The Country started in 2010 with very humble beginnings. It was a one day show held in the Providence Bay Arena. That year we had 8 trailers and a few hundred people in attendance. Today Bluegrass In The Country is considered to be one of the very best events on the bluegrass circuit in Ontario. Fans and performers come from all parts of the province.
It is the main fund raiser for the Manitoulin Special Olympics program. Manitoulin Special Olympic has over 50 participants and their achievements are outstanding. These athletes have earned 2 gold medals in World competition and several gold medals at the National and Provincial levels. We are very proud of their achievements. Our show has become a community embraced event. The Providence Bay Fair Board is a huge blessing to us. I would ask that you view our Sponsors Page. You will see there more than 100 local businesses who sponsor our show. Without their commitment this show would not be possible. We also receive support from the Municipality of Central Manitoulin. Our committee of volunteers works together very hard throughout the year to make this weekend extra Special. To the fantastic performers who always enjoy coming and who give us their special rates for Special Olympics, we say thank you. To the Red Hat Ladies who have taken over decorating our venue we say WOW way to go. To 100.7 our local radio station we say thank you for giving us a huge leg up promoting this event.
To those who buy tickets we also say thank you and the Manitoulin Special Olympians thank you as well. You are the real stars of the show.
And so to everyone, WELCOME to Bluegrass In The Country
By far the most fun you can possibly have for $40
See you there
