“We’re excited to bring the ACM Party for a Cause Festival back to our home-away-from-home in Las Vegas,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “As we continue to raise the bar in country music entertainment, we’re also educating guests on the causes they’re contributing to.  It’s because of the fans buying tickets and joining us for this event, that we’re able to support and give back to those that serve and protect our country.”  

The festival will include multiple stages for ongoing LIVE country music performances, interactive games, a country marketplace, and more to be announced.
