Centerfield Music Festival kicks off tonight

Centerfield Music Festival is about to take over St. Paul.

The two-day event kicks off tonight at 5:00pm while the gates open on Saturday at 2:30pm.

“We’re quite excited to actually leave the last two years behind us and actually celebrate together,” said Mayor Maureen Miller.

“It’s a wonderful festival that’s been put together. But the best about it is the multi-generations that show up, it’s a full family event and it’s just nice to get out and about and actually visit with your neighbours again.”

Work was underway Thursday setting up for the Centerfield shows.

Jess Moskaluke headlines on Friday night, while the Lakeland’s own Brett Kissel returns home for the Saturday night show.

Mike Plume, The Prairie States, Trevor Panczak, and The Wilkinsons are some of the other acts that will delight country music fans this weekend.

It’s the 5th year running of the festival.

“This field was not necessarily ideal for a festival. We had some low spots on the field surface that was fine for ball, it was in the outfield, but it wouldn’t have been suitable for this. So we invested in levelling those areas and getting proper. We’ve had a week of rain and we’re on dry ground,” said Miller.

“The lineup the Troubadours put together is amazing. So we’re excited about it all.”
