WE Fest

On the shores of Lake Sallie in Detroit Lakes, Minn., Soo Pass Ranch is the perfect natural venue for WE Fest. Its amphitheater can hold up to 50,000 people, and the meadows and woods surrounding the concert bowl offer space for 35,000 campers. For 30-plus years, WE Fest has been one of the United States’ leading country music festivals, offering festivalgoers sets from artists such as Eric Church, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Jake Owen and many more. The event has earned nominations for the Country Music Association’s Best Special Event honor twice.
