NAMPA, Idaho — The Ford Idaho Center will be packed June 26 as the 53rd Treasure Valley God and Country Music Festival kicks off. The annual event honors service members, first responders, elected officials and public servants.
The festival started back in 1966 with the goal of bringing patriotism back to the community. The old-fashioned, patriotic and religious festival features live music, guest speakers and fireworks.
This year's featured speaker is Hill City Church lead pastor Josh Branham. The family friendly night also features music from 7eventh Time Down and The Regulators. American Idol contestant Maddie Zahm also performed at the festival.
We caught up with one man who says he is happy to support the cause.
"It's God and Country and that is what I am all about. i love the title of the festival. It's a great festival. It's family oriented and it's country oriented," said Luther Hill.
Hill says this was his fifth time at the festival. Each year, he comes sporting a new American themed outfit.
