The Spring Break Up Country Music Festival is a music festival at TRADEX in Abbotsford. The event features live performances, food, games and more in March.
Spring Break Up Country Music Festival in 2023
New for 2023, the Spring Break Up Country Music Festival is an event that highlights upcoming and already popular Canadian country artists. There’s lots of live music to enjoy at the one-day event, as well as various other fun activities.
The festival’s entertainment lineup is particularly impressive. It’s headlined by Juno award-winners Dean Brody and Meghan Patrick. Also performing at the event are Tyler Joe Miller and Dane Bateman. A selection of local artists get the chance to perform as well. Festival organizers hosted a Spring Breakthrough Talent Competition in search of aspiring country singers. Contest winners hit the stage to kick off the evening’s festivities.
In addition to all of the live entertainment, the festival also features a mechanical bull and other experiential games. There are market vendors to explore and lots of food available to purchase throughout the evening.
The Spring Break Up Country Music Festival takes place in 2023 on Saturday, March 25th. Doors open at 3:00 pm and the festival continues until 2:00 am. The event is held at the TRADEX Centre which is located at 1190 Cornell Street in Abbotsford.
EASTER IN THE FRASER VALLEY
The Easter Long Weekend runs from April 7th to the 10th in 2023. To celebrate, there are awesome adults-only Easter events at places like Taves Family Farms and Maan Farms in Abbotsford on the weekend before Easter. On the Easter Long Weekend itself, there are kid-friendly events at Fantasy Farms and Greendale Acres in Chilliwack as well as at both Maan Farms and Taves Family Farms in Abbotsford.
Tickets for the Spring Break Up Country Music Festival are available online. General admission starts at $60 per person. However, the price increases up to about $85 each as the event gets closer.
For those who want an enhanced experience, VIP tickets are also available for about $140 per person. VIP ticket holders are guaranteed quick entry into the festival as well as access to an exclusive viewing area with a private bar.
Partial proceeds from ticket sales go to Archway Community Services which is a great non-profit organization that offers programs to people who need help in the Fraser Valley.
