The God and Country Family Festival has a rich history, which began when sixties western film star Chuck Connors of the popular “Rifleman” television series helped launch patriotic parades nationwide.
The first patriotic parade, now “Parade America,” started in 1966 on the Wednesday night before the 4th of July. The parade was so successful it was moved to the 3rd Saturday in May and continues to be sponsored by the Exchange Club of Nampa.
The God and Country Association was formed to continue the God and Country Rally, now called “The God and Country Family Festival”. Originally held at Lakeview Park, it was moved to the Idaho Center in 2000 and continues to be a FREE community event on the traditional Wednesday preceding the 4th of July!
This old-fashioned, patriotic, and religious festival emphasizes the words and ideals of our nation’s founders, and special recognition is given to those who serve in the military, both active duty and veterans. Local public servants, especially law enforcement and emergency service personnel, are also honored.
