As recommended by health officials, if you choose to participate in events outside of your home, please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing, mask-wearing, and frequent handwashing. If you are sick, please stay home.
Dust off your cowboy boots, shine up your belt buckle, and start practicing your two-steppin’, because it’s almost time to start dancing again at Nashville North.
The Calgary Stampede’s iconic live music tent is back this year, and they just announced their biggest lineup of performers ever.
Things will look a little different at Nashville North though, as the Stampede is working hard to make sure that safety is top-of-mind.
“We recognize the Stampede is leading the way in Canada in a return to live events,” said Kyle Corner, Manager, Stampede Programming, in a media release, adding, “We are also leading the way with safety measures, seeking out and combining best practices from across North America.”
First off, Nashville North will have a new look and location for 2021. The live music venue will show off a canopy-style tent to allow for more distancing and airflow, instead of the more enclosed tent that we’re used it. The Stampede hotspot will be located in the heart of the Park this year, next to the Grandstand.
Additionally, digital queuing will be used to prevent the infamous lineups that are usually seen outside of Nashville North.
The Stampede has also said that they continue to review all of Nashville North’s operations, and discussions around rapid testing and proof of vaccination for entry into the tent are in the works. Event organizers say that they plan to make final decisions in the coming weeks.
