Citadel Country Spirit USA is a great American festival experience, a three-day country music spectacular where like-minded country music enthusiasts come together for a live country music celebration.
While music is the main attraction, festival-goers are treated to an array of activities, a wide selection of food vendors and restaurants — and libations to please every palate, from Sierra Nevada for beer drinkers to wine at the Barefoot Wine Garden and spirits by Crown Royal.
Hosted by the Chester County Conference & Visitors Bureau (CVB), 22,000 fans from 28 states and two Canadian provinces attended the festival held in 2018. For the second consecutive year, a portion of all ticket sales will be donated to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. In 2018, $50,000 was raised for CHOP through Citadel Country Spirit USA directly, and a matching donation of $50,000 was made by Citadel, the festival’s title sponsor, bringing the total donation in 2018 to $100,000!
