|What is WE Fest?|
WE Fest is a yearly country music festival that began in 1983 and now attracts more than 50,000 attendees each year. The festival hosts big name acts from the country music scene every year. Examples include Big & Rich, Hank Williams, Jr., Rascal Flatts, Blake Shelton, and Miranda Lambert. Activities for festival goers include the Miller Lite Baggo Challenge and a Karaoke Roundup in which contestants sing for cash prizes.
The event is held at the Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota where the scenic landscape forms a natural amphitheater. The ranch on the shore of Lake Sallie features 9,000 campsites with space for up to 35,000 campers, making the festival a popular "stay and play" event. Modern conveniences like lighting and plumbing are available both within the concert area and in shower houses throughout the campgrounds.
