Country Thunder Returns to Wisconsin with Best Line-up Ever

Country Thunder It’s time to learn the lines of the hottest songs on the radio because the Country Thunder Music Festival is back for its 24th annual party! A staple of local entertainment for years, this popular festival attracts thousands of people from all parts of the country. The best part is residents of The Trails of Pheasant Ridge don’t have to drive far to enjoy this amazing event.

For the 2018 festival, headlining acts include Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Toby Keith, Dierks Bentley and many more.  Tent camping and RVs are welcome for this four-day event from Thursday, July 19 to Sunday, July 22. Admission for a single-day is $75 and for a four-day pass it’s $160. Besides enjoying a day of country music, the venue offers fun for everyone with retail vendors, official merchandise booths, bars, a food court, a Ferris wheel and more.

For first-timers, remember to pack your waterproof sunscreen, hat, sweater, comfortable shoes and of course, your wristband! It’s always advisable to wear a fanny pack or carry a small backpack with cash, ID, portable chargers and ear plugs.

The Country Thunder festival is right up North Burlington/Richmond Road from our Trails of Pheasant Ridge community, which offers great access to other local activities like this one. With prices ranging from the low $200s to the $280s, the buyer can choose from nine-floor plans, and homes with two to three bedrooms and two. One- or two-floor plans are available with between 1,503 and 2,929 square feet. The Trails of Pheasant Ridge’s close proximity to both Chicago and Milwaukee is another benefit of living in this charming community.
