PENDLETON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pendleton Whisky has announced that they will once again be the title sponsor of the 2nd annual Pendleton® Whisky Music Fest, featuring one of the world’s most enduring artists, Maroon 5 as headliner.
On Saturday, July 15th at the Pendleton Round-Up Grounds, the three-time Grammy award winning band will follow in the footsteps of country-mega group, Zac Brown Band as the Pendleton Whisky Music Fest moves into its second year. After years of planning and months of coordination, organizers Doug Corey and Andy McAnally have successfully implemented an annual event set to be as big as the Round-Up itself.
“Pendleton Whisky has always been synonymous with a good time,” said Tia Bledsoe, Vice President of Marketing, Hood River Distillers. “Which is why it made perfect sense to host an upbeat music festival that matches the spirit of the Round-Up.”
Since 1910, the Pendleton Round-Up has thrived on the participation of community members and efforts of volunteers. The Pendleton Whisky Music Fest embodies that same ideal as sponsors and organizers embrace the culture and traditions unique to the town.
“Doug and I are thrilled to once again hold the Pendleton Whisky Music Fest in a venue with such rich history,” said Andy McAnally. “We are so glad the community embraced the event and supported the arena expanding beyond the iconic rodeo. We look forward to bringing a ‘Party to Pendleton’ every year.”
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 10th and feature a variety of price options, including premium arena and reserved grandstand seating. This music festival provides premium on-site and walking distance camping options and several hotels within minutes of the Pendleton Round-Up Grounds.
The Pendleton Whisky Music Fest is made possible by presenting sponsor Legacy Dodge, stage sponsor Hill Meat, Pendleton Whisky, the Pendleton Round-Up Association, Happy Canyon Company and local sponsors.
