About Night in the Country

Night in the Country debuted in 2002 as a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley. It began in the Lyon County Fairgrounds rodeo arena with the headliners playing in the back of a flatbed truck. Now, 20 years later, NITC is Nevada's largest and longest-running country music festival with approximately 3,000 campsites to accommodate the roughly 10,000 attendees who travel from more than 35 states to attend the festival. Some of the biggest names in country music have performed on our main stage such as: Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, The Band Perry, Brantley Gilbert, Thomas Rhett, Justin Moore, Brett Eldredge, Cole Swindell, Brothers Osborne, and Luke Combs.

NITC is more than 3 nights of Pure Country music. It includes events within the festival including Extreme Bull Riding, the Tournament of Champions, The Sampling Box, Morning Yoga, Beer Relay, and the Full Moon Saloon Aftermath. NITC is continuously adding new experiences and upgrades to enhance the experience for festivalgoers.

Every year, NITC donates approximately $60,000 to 30 non-profits through the Give and Get Program.
