The Country Music Festival was started in 1981 to raise funds to help to build a new ice arena in Lion's Head.  The Festival is one of the most popular events on the Peninsula, and draws people from all over Southern Ontario and part of the United States.
 
Visitors come to hear the music country stars of another generation used to play. Gail Brinkman, one of the organizers calls it "Old-Time Country Music". The Community Center is transformed into a big virtual living room for music, dancing and socializing.  The musical program begins on Saturday afternoon, and the local Rotary Club operates a Food Booth to ensure no one goes home hungry.
 
Through the years, many well known musicians have performed at the Festival including, Country Music Hall of Fame Artists Dallas Harms, and Larry Mercey. J. Brian Oakes, Harold McIntryre, Grant Tingey, Johnny Burke, Terry Sumsion, Jamie Warren, Jim Beech, Myrna Lorrie, Mary Rowan and the Beckett family are just a few of the many performers who have taken part in the Festival over the years.
