Country Music Festival in Old Sacramento this summer

Country singer Jimmie Allen will headline the 2022 SAC Waterfront Festival.

SACRAMENTO, CA – Grab your cowboy boots and get dizzy!

Old Sacramento Waterfront has announced that it will host the SAC Waterfront Festival, and it’s for all you country music lovers.

Although they haven’t announced the full lineup, American Country Music Award-winning artist and Dancing With the Stars contestant Jimmie Allen is headlining the festival. Allen won the American Country Music Award for “New Male Artist of the Year” in 2021 and was recognized as the first black artist to win this category.

“I’m working on that with Jimmie’s manager, so I’ll probably know the rest of the lineup in the next few weeks,” said Todd Speelman, president and chief producer of ST Productions.

Speelman also plans to bring in artists from Nashville, as well as using local talent.

“It will be a day, for now, and we’ll see how it goes. We’ll have four good bands for a line-up,” Speelman said.

In terms of layout, there will be a VIP area for around 400 people as well as a pit just in front of the stage that can accommodate an additional 100 people. Everything else will be general admission and include various food and drink vendors. Plus, this event is family friendly, so all ages are welcome.

“Jimmie is a really good crossover artist,” Speelman said. “Even if you’re not a huge country fan, it has a kind of country-pop vibe, so we hope to attract a wide range of people who come to the show.”

All tickets are available through Eventbrite.
