For sixteen years we have been growing and perfecting our music festival into a weekend of great country music, quality merchandise from diverse vendors, unique festival attractions and a wide variety of eats, sweets and drinks. We promote the event as the hottest ticket in the region – a “must-see” in Nevada. The campaign achieves high visibility on the local and regional level, while also targeting out-of-market visitors. Night in the Country draws visitors from across the nation and each year our attendance numbers dwarf that of the previous. For our 16th year, NITC is gearing up to entertain over 15,000. We invite you to be a part of this incredible weekend.

We are happy to tailor sponsorship packages, advertising concepts and activities/specialty booths to suit your needs as long as they work within our overall festival theme. Please don’t hesitate to contact us so that we can provide an idea specific to you.



Interested in becoming a volunteer? Sign up today!

One of the reasons Night in the Country is a successful event is due to our many volunteers who donate their weekend to ensure our patrons have a great time. Last year we had over 400 people donate their time and energy to help put on an amazing show for Night in the Country.

Night in the Country is able to offer our volunteers a chance to participate in the Give & Get Program.  This program was founded in 2013 and serves a unique purpose for non-profit organizations.  With this program each volunteer will be able to work for an hourly rate ranging from $8-$12.  This will then be donated by Night in the Country to each volunteer’s chosen non-profit organization.

Volunteer Information

Volunteers are required to complete an online application form, pass a background check, and complete the online training. The age requirement for volunteers is 18. Applications will only be accepted through June 30, 2017.

Dates and Times of Service

Volunteer work various schedules depending on their specific duties and responsibilities. Most shifts occur the weekend of the event; however, some will begin work a week or two before the event and some will work after the event. While some volunteers work many more hours, we ask that volunteers work 12 hours in order to receive full volunteer benefits. Your work dates and time schedule will be provided by the Volunteer Coordinator via email once you have been approved.


Your Reward

For donating your time and energy you will be provided all returning volunteers with a 2-day general admission ticket for the Night in the Country Music Festival. This ticket wristband allows entry into the venue for the weekend.  Along with the 2-day pass you will be provided with one free volunteer shirt.  This shirt must be worn as a uniform and ONLY during your shift.  We also have available meals and refreshments during your working shift, if applicable. Limited Volunteer Camping is available at a discounted price.

**Volunteer packets, tickets, and shirts will be issued at the volunteer center when you arrive on-site for your job shift and ONLY to those who have passed in the online training program. **

Training links will be sent to your email once approved and accepted into the program. All trainings MUST be completed by July 7, 2017 in order to confirm your NITC volunteer job position.  If the training is not completed you will NOT be guaranteed a position.  Your job placement and shift times will be sent out for your review and acceptance after the training is complete.  The acceptance of your position needs to be completed before July 21, 2017.

**Parking passes are NOT covered with this volunteer program.  Please check our website for pricing information. **

After the music festival, an appreciation event will be held to recognize all volunteers who have participated in this year’s event. The Give & Get check presentations for the non-profit organizations chosen by the volunteers will be presented.  This year the event will be held August 26, 2017.

The Basics


We’ve held our festival away from the big city lights for over 15 years, out in the quiet farming town of Yerington, Nevada. It makes the perfect spot for 3 days of camping, music and great times. That’s part of what makes Night in the Country Nevada’s Legendary Country music festival.
