Night in the Country, NITC, will be hosting its 20th music festival at the Lyon County Fairgrounds in Mason Valley from Thursday, July 22nd through Saturday, July 24th and tickets are completely sold out!
The support of NITC visitors and event sponsors help support youth and families of Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley (5 sites in four communities) through-out the year. Several local non-profit groups provide volunteers before, during, and after Night in the County, and these groups earn finances that support their organizations. NITC calls it “Give~Get~Repeat”.
Yerington and Mason Valley businesses also reap the benefits of having an influx of guests who spend their dollars locally in convenience stores, retail shops, gas stations, motels, casinos, etc.
NITC production crews plan for the entire year leading up to the music festival for sufficient supplemental emergency services so that there is minimal impact on existing medical, law enforcement, or fire services. Travis Crowder, the Night in the Country Festival Manager reports that there will be a staffed “field hospital” on site, as well as security and law enforcement paid through NITC funds.
Food & beverages, ice, water, vendors, music, games, sports, dancing, yoga, fireworks, rodeo events, laughter, fun, friendship: it’s all available on-site at this self-contained festival.
Liquid Blue Events is an all-inclusive production company based in Reno, Nevada . Liquid Blue has been collaborating with Mason Valley Boys & Girls Club for 2 decades now to host and “blow NITC fans away” with a weekend of good music, good friends, and good times in the farmland of Mason Valley.
Throwback Thursday features the Marshall Tucker Band; on Friday Cody Johnson will be On My Way to You at the Main Stage; and on Saturday Jon Pardi will be serenading that he’s Head Over Boots for you.
On top of that incredible Main Stage Line-up, NITC guests can look forward to Whitney Morgan singing I’m on Fire; Rodney Atkins’ Farmer’s Daughter; Chris Janson’s Good Vibes; Gabby Barrett’s The Good Ones; Tyler Rich will Leave Her Wild; Niko Moon crooning Drunk Over You; and Lainey Wilson intoning Things a Man Oughta Know.
Past Night in the Country guests have said that the friendliness of the locals made them feel welcome, like they were “coming home”. Others have said that they “keep coming back” to live & play in the country for a weekend knowing that the music festival has a far-reaching effect for children & families.
