We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the team at Boots & Hearts as they entered year four as the biggest country music festival in Canada! It was the first time For The Love of Food had to put on their cowboy boots for a festival, and we were very excited to do so.
It was four days of festival madness! In the premium area, the Burl’s Creek barn transformed into Daisy Dukes, and hosted after parties until the wee hours of the morning. While taking a break from the music, premium ticket holders could feast on bbq bites, take a visit to the beauty salon, or could kick back and have a massage.
Backstage, Anthony Rose created a feast of all kinds of smoky bbq dishes for our artists. Wooden tables, day beds and hammocks created the perfect space for talent to kick back and take in the quaint backstage area that is Burl’s Creek.
Meanwhile on the grounds, guests young and old kicked up some dirt while exploring all the different activations, food offerings and areas around the grounds. This festival never stopped! There was lots of fun to be had all over the site including in the Fan Fair Village, the Boots Arcade, Boomtown, there was shoe shines, a fishing derby, a foam party, bull riding contests, line dancing, carnival games, a pancake breakfast, after parties, margarita bars, the Kickoff Party..the list goes on!
The crowd at Boots & Hearts is not afraid to have a great time. We want to thank the team at Republic Live for teaching us how to be a little bit more country and for welcoming us into their festival family. We will see you all next year at Boots & Hearts 2016!
