Central Alberta country crooners Randi Boulton, Denver Daines and Tera Lee are among dozens of entertainers slated to perform this week at the Daines Country Music Picnic.

The 36th Annual Ivan Daines and Friends event goes from Wednesday (Aug. 8) to Sunday (Aug. 12) at the Daines Ranch and Rodeo Grounds, 6 km north of Innisfail.

On the entertainment side of things is a lineup of 100 artists, including the band Ty Hart and Wylde Ryde, and singers Alee Lauren, Dean Roy, and Jo Hikk.

The group All You Need is Love will do a tribute to the Beatles, cowboy poet Buddy Gale will make an appearance, as will Spirit of the West radio show personality Hugh McLennon and local TV and radio celebrities Dan Butler, Cory Noel, Suzy Burge and Greg Shannon.

Those attending the Picknic can also watch the Canadian championship competition for natural horse training.

Free on-site camping is included with gate admission.

Besides a beer garden, the event will also offer family foot races, team cattle penning, a barn dance and bonfires.

A tailgate sale will be held, as well as Alberta’s biggest karaoke contest (with semi-finals on Thursday), and a gospel pancake breakfast and cowboy church on Sunday.

Advanced tickets are available for $45 from the Black Knight Ticket Centre. Gate prices vary, with single day and week-long passes available for individuals and families.
