Tickets are on sale for Night in the Country. The country music festival is three days of music, camping, and great times. Night in the Country is held out in the quiet farming town of Yerington, roughly 70 miles outside of Reno.

More than 400 volunteers help make Night in the Country a success. Many of them participate in the festival’s Give & Get Program. Founded in 2013, it serves to benefit nonprofits in the community. Each volunteer works for an hourly rate ranging from $8-$12. That money is donated by Night in the Country to each volunteer’s chosen nonprofit organization.
