Citadel Country Spirit USA is a great American festival experience, a three-day country music spectacular where like-minded country music enthusiasts come together for a live country music celebration. While music is the main attraction, festival-goers are treated to an array of activities, a wide selection of food vendors and restaurants — and libations to please every palate, from Sierra Nevada for beer drinkers to wine at the Barefoot Wine Garden and spirits by Crown Royal.
In its inaugural year, Citadel Country Spirit USA earned resounding accolades from fans, sponsors and community partners. By popular demand, the second annual festival is again being held the scenic, 33-acre Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Grounds.
Hosted by the Chester County Conference & Visitors Bureau (CVB), 22,000 fans from 28 states and two Canadian provinces attended the festival held in 2018. For the second consecutive year, a portion of all ticket sales will be donated to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. In 2018, $50,000 was raised for CHOP through Citadel Country Spirit USA directly, and a matching donation of $50,000 was made by Citadel, the festival’s title sponsor, bringing the total donation in 2018 to $100,000!
