Nation Fest is coming. Will you be there?

To celebrate the Turkey Hill Nation and thank our 17,000-plus members for being a part of the Turkey Hill team, we’re throwing an epic party called Nation Fest.

The celebration on October 14 will feature fun and games for the whole family, including:

3:00 PM Kids & Family Show (Steven Courtney)

3-time Parents Choice Award winning performing songwriter delivers a fun interactive set of tunes geared toward children and families.

5:00 PM General Public Show (The Steven Courtney Band)

A rich blend of roadhouse blues, honky-tonk rhythms, raw, straight-ahead juke joint sound with folky mojo vibe. Bandmates include Doug Walton on electric guitar, Andy Lake on keys, Eric Foster on drums and Bobby Wehner on bass. Session player and talented sideman Andrew Jacobs sits in with the band as well.
