Things To Do During CCMA Country Music Week 2021


  • By Tourism London

In case you missed it, the hottest week in country music is coming to the Forest City and this is your guide on all the great things to do and events (almost all of which are FREE) to take part in from November 26-29, 2021 including a special launch party on November 25!

What is Country Music Week you ask? It began in 1977 by the Canadian Country Music Association as an annual event created to heighten awareness and increase exposure for Canada’s country music artists. Today, Country Music Week is made up of three components: a music festival, which includes CCMA Fan Village, a Songwriters’ Series, talent showcases and FanFest; the CCMA Awards Show, which is a two-hour live, television special highlighting a year in country music; as well as an industry conference which allows the Canadian country music industry to honour those working behind the scenes via educational workshops and seminars, networking receptions, awards ceremonies and much more!
