Due to severe flooding and uncertainty of the safety of event grounds, Country Stampede officials have announced an alternative location for the 2019 music festival, set for June 20-22, to be held at the Heartland Motorsports Park located at 7530 SW Topeka Blvd, Topeka, Kansas.
“Safety is our main concern. The severe weather prompted us to partner with the good folks over at Heartland Motorsports in Topeka, just 45 minutes away to ensure all of our concert goers will be out of harm’s way. We are maintaining the integrity of what we currently have in place to our new location,” says Wayne Rouse, president of Country Stampede.
The decision has been well-received by a number of sponsors and members of the local media.
“While the tradition of Kicker Country Stampede taking place at beautiful Tuttle Creek State Park in Manhattan will change this year, the decision to move the event to Heartland Park in Topeka, is the right choice for the safety and convenience of the thousands of loyal country music fans who come from all over the United States to be part of this great event,” says Alpha Media Topeka’s General Manager, Larry Riggins. “We are happy to invite you all to the Capital city of Kansas, and as they say, the show must go on!”
Although the venue is different, concertgoers can still expect a great time at Country Stampede.
