The City of Wetaskiwin has entered the Small Town Saturday Night contest in hopes of bringing the country music festival associated with Big Valley Jamboree to the community.

Round one of voting is already underway and is only open until Feb. 15.

According to the city’s website, if the community wins the concert, all proceeds from ticket sales will go to Walkable Wetaskiwin for trail improvements in the city.

Country music fans and Wetaskiwin residents are being encouraged to show their support, go online, and vote to put the community in the top 10 contenders.

Voting can be done at https://www.bigvalleyjamboree.com/stsn/vote.

Voters can keep track of how well their community is doing in relation to the other contenders with an online leaderboard, listing the 31 communities vying for votes. The leaderboard represents standings based on the total votes cast and is calculated daily.

Big Valley Jamboree is celebrating 25 years of country music extravaganza this year and according to the organization’s website would like to thank all the fans and supporters from across North America by offering a Small Town Saturday Night contest, “A major part of that support comes from rural communities throughout Alberta. As a “thank-you” for this ongoing support, Big Valley Jamboree has decided to award one of these communities with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put your small town on the map.”

On Feb. 16 the top 10 communities will be announced. Feb. 18 to 26 video crews will be dispatched to the 10 communities and the second round of voting will take place March 13 to 27. On March 29 the winning community will be announced with the “mini” festival being held in April 29.
