Make your plans now for the 2010 God and Country Festival on Wednesday, June 30 at the Idaho Center. We are excited to have a national Mystery Artist who can’t be announced contractually until May. Let’s just say that they are experiencing nationwide success with hit songs that have made it onto the soundtracks of blockbuster movies.
We have a special theme this year: honoring our nation’s WW II Veterans!
Plus, in addition to the Mystery Artist, we can announce that national artist Meredeth Andrews will be performing at the event, as well as Treasure Valley’s own Music Minister’s Band. All of these bands and more will also be performing at this year’s free concert. The fireworks show is the largest in the Treasure Valley, and is choreographed with patriotic and inspirational music celebrating, among other things, our freedom to assemble, and our God who endowed us with those freedoms.
Schedule of events
- 5:00 – Gates open
- 6:00 – Entertainment starts, including Music Ministers’ Band and Meredeth Andrews.
- 8:00 – Grand celebration, including a salute to our military and their families, presentation of the colors, national anthem, awards & more, plus our National Mystery Artist.

Treasure Valley Music Ministers
In addition to our national Mystery Artist and Meredeth Andrews, part of this year’s opening entertainment will be the Treasure Valley Music Ministers’ Band including Jesse Schuster, Scott Riggan, Gordon Knapp, Mark Thornton, Andy Hendley, and Doug Connelly.
We could use your help!
We are looking for business, church, and individual sponsors to keep this event going. The God and Country Festival is entirely volunteer-led, and is supported by donors and sponsors. Your support helps us bring great Christian music to the Treasure Valley and give much-needed publicity to the ministries that set up tables at the event free of charge.
