This year, the 17th installment of the ever-popular Country Roads concert for children will be holding a unique family fun fiesta - the Cowboy Festival & Fair. Scheduled for Sunday, March 29th, from 4.30 p.m. onwards, at the Dutch Burgher Union (DBU), Thunmulla.
Tickets are priced at a low Rs.300/- and are available at the gate and at selected Cargills Food City outlets.
The Country Roads tribe will also be enforcing a strict ‘Jeans & T-shirts’ dress code policy, while cowboy hats are optional.
Children are especially sure to enjoy the picnic setting which will offer up a wide variety of food & beverage stalls and activities, including BBQ and traditional country and ethnic cuisine, games, horses, and many more.
Every effort is being made to transform this year’s Country Roads into a true family affair as the festival features an open-air concert at a picnic-friendly venue.
