Billboard Country Songwriter of the Year Phil Vassar will headline the show, and Fox's X-Factor season two winner Tate Stevens will open for Vassar. Local bands Cardinal Sound and The Cody Hicks Band will kick off the free-to-the public event.
In addition to the free music, the family-friendly event will include carnival-style rides, inflatables, climbing walls, face painting and more. Admission to the rides will cost only $5 per person for an all-night pass. You can't beat that!
"We're very excited to celebrate our 75th anniversary," said Brownells CEO Pete Brownell. "We've got some great entertainment lined up, and we're looking forward to a fantastic event. We're also excited to help our local school district who's hosting a 50/50 raffle. They'll be using the money they raise to help students participate in extracurricular academic activities. Anyone who can get to Montezuma, Iowa, is welcome to attend."
Monte Fest is being held on the Montezuma town square and will start at 4 p.m.; it'll conclude at approximately 10 p.m. with a fireworks show.
