Flooding moves Country Stampede to Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) — Music lovers planning to attend Country Stampede next month are getting a better idea of what the festivals last-minute move means for them.

On Friday, organizers announced that because of severe flooding in the Tuttle Creek area, the three-day event would take place at Heartland Motorsports Park, at 7530 SW Topeka Blvd., instead.

As for ticketholders who cant or dont want to make the trip to Topeka – 78 miles away from the original location – Country Stampede says its “strict no refunds or returns policy” remains in effect.

Camping will be allowed at Heartland Park during the festival, organizers say. There will be campgrounds on both concrete and grass, depending on the specific area, and electrical and water hookups are available for those who paid for them.

The camping areas do not have picnic tables, fire rings, or other amenities, organizers said, adding that campers would need to bring their own.

MANHATTAN, Kan.— Due to severe flooding and uncertainty of the safety of event grounds, Country Stampede officials have announced an alternative location for the 2019 music festival, according to a media release on the festival web site.

The festival set for June 20-22 will be held at the Heartland Motorsports Park located at 7530 SW Topeka Blvd, Topeka, Kansas.

Safety is our main concern. The severe weather prompted us to partner with the good folks over at Heartland Motorsports in Topeka, just 45 minutes away to insure all of our concert goers will be out of harms way.

We are maintaining the integrity of what we currently have in place to our new location, says Wayne Rouse, president of Country Stampede. ​ For any other questions, email [email protected] or call 800-795-8091.
