Country music festival in Manhattan through 2017

Country Stampede

MANHATTAN, Kansas (AP) — The music and camping festival called Country Stampede will stay in Manhattan at least through 2017.

Wayne Rouse, president of Country Stampede, said Tuesday that the festival has signed a new five-year lease with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.

The lease was signed months ago but Rouse publicized it Tuesday to dispel rumors that the festival was moving. He says festival organizers never considered holding the festival at another location.

Country Stampede occurs the last full weekend of June at Tuttle Creek State Park. This year’s Stampede is scheduled for June 27-30.
