We have a very sad announcement to make! Unfortunately we have to postpone the Northern Ontario Open Country Singing Contest to year 2024. We are very hopeful that all of the contestants as well as the people attending and helping with our contest are understanding of our decision. In these crucial times we have to come together and stay safe. We do apologize and look forward to seeing you at our next contest or event. As of now we cannot even raise the necessary funds to put on this fantastic event but will do so as soon as possible. Once again thank you for understanding from all of us on the Nipissing Country Music Association's committee.

Hello my 'Country Friends'! This year we will also be raising the necessary monies needed to run the event that we want to keep alive for all concerned. We are maybe running a singing contest in 2024 if things get better!!! The place will be at the Billy Barber Complex (Yarlaski Park) in Callander (just a few short minutes from North Bay). We are hoping that this will be a great event again and looking forward to seeing all contestants. Keep checking back for updates on our fundraisers and other events we will be hosting.
By the way the attendance for the contest will be free if possible and we would like to invite you to bring along your own chairs, as there will not be chairs available for you and the event will remain outdoors. 2019 brought us another record breaking audience attendance and hats off to you. Let's do it again for 2024 and make it even bigger!!!
Thanks to all of you, Harley.
