Vilna Cowboy Fest (5th Annual) July 17th - 19th, 2015
Review by Bj Smith

The Vilna Cowboy Fest 2015 proved to be a collection of the very best Balladeers, pickers and poets this part of the country has to offer. The audiences of from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon were entertained by Jackson MacKenzie, Bob Glidden, Bryn Theisen,The Command Sisters, Kayla Patrick, Doris Daley, Bj Smith, The Carolines, Adele Johnson, John Cunningham and Eli Barsi. The folks in attendance were heard to say they had a wonderful and would definitely put next year's show on the calendar. The entertainment kicked off in the early afternoon Friday and continued that evening and throughout the day and evening Saturday with a dance to the Push'n 60 dance band to close out the day. Sunday began with a well attended Church service with the usual inspiring sermon delivered by Bryn. This event is held at a great facility with excellent acoustics adjacent to a large parking area with plenty of RV space. There was plenty of good home cooked food provided at the hall by local Ag. Society women. If the middle of July is open on your calendar next year, the Vilna Cowboy Fest is one to circle.
