Jake Owen to headline Detroit Mountain fundraiser on July 2 – Detroit Lakes Tribune


DETROIT LAKES — Country star Jake Owen will be in Detroit Lakes for the July 4 holiday weekend, headlining the 7th annual Music on the Mountain fundraiser on Saturday, July 2.

Owen, a chart-topping country singer-songwriter who has eight Billboard No. 1 hits to his name, will be joined at this year’s Detroit Mountain fundraiser by special guests John Morgan and George Birge.

Music on the Mountain supports capital improvements to the Detroit Mountain Recreation Area. Past events have supported the construction and expansion of Landslide Tubing Park, adding an additional snowmaking pit to increase winter snow production, as well as opening the road to the DMRA.

Doors open on the west side of the Detroit Mountain Lodge at 5:30 p.m. Music begins at 6:15 p.m. with John Morgan, followed by George Birge at 7:45 p.m. Owen is expected to take the stage shortly after Birge wraps up her set at 8:45 a.m.

Music on the Mountain is an event for all ages, but children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The show will take place rain or shine, so please plan accordingly. This is an outdoor event and the lodge will not be open to the general public. Seating will be General Admission (GA) garden seating. Chairs will not be provided, so please bring your own lawn chairs and/or blankets.
