Due to Covid-19 Restrictions this year, instead of the Johnny Cash Country Festival we will be holding The Man in Black Cocktail Party. There are limited tickets.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2022 Johnny Cash Country Festival.
Stanthorpe is the only place in the world – outside the States of course – that Johnny visited regularly, for some two decades – and not to play music!
Johnny, with his wife June Carter, herself a renowned singer with the famous Carter Family, first visited Stanthorpe in the early 1980s, and visited regularly thereafter for two decades. They came to visit an old friend from America, who had moved to Australia for family reasons.
Johnny took an instant liking to our little town and its surrounding districts of apple and stone fruit orchards, vineyards, and a wide and empty countryside where he enjoyed riding, hunting and overall…the anonymity.
So, Stanthorpe can legitimately lay claim to be the only place in the world, outside America, which can call itself ‘Johnny Cash Country’.
