The Magna Hoedown is the largest annual fundraiser in York Region, having raised over $13 million in its 31-year history. This year, 20 York Region charities, non-profits, and community groups have been selected as recipients of the Hoedown proceeds. Collectively, these organizations support over 116,000 York Region residents.

Saturday, Sept. 14 – We’re returnin’ to the Hoedown’s roots and starting the evening with special country Tribute Artists and a Showcase of Magna Hoedown Showdown winners to get the party going.

Place your bids on the incredible silent auction items, enjoy a delicious Texas-style barbecue dinner, and see if you won the Prospector’s Raffle $100,000 grand prize.

And end the night by partying away with the Hoedown fan favourite, headliner James Barker Band. All attendees in the tent at 6:30, 7:30, and 8:30 p.m. will be eligible to win special door prize draws.

The James Barker Band is returning to the Hoedown stage and back by popular demand after performing in 2017!
