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.
