Cedarburg's country music festival is hosting six artists and a golf outing

Eddie Morales - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Cedarburg’s Country in the Burg music festival will return Aug. 27-28 for its first two-day event to rectify last year’s cancellation.

"I know everyone's going through a tough time during this," organizer Alex Uhan said last year. "Just know, we're here to make it up to you."

This will be the second Country in the Burg event since its debut in 2019. 

Country in the Burg’s lineup includes six artists and a DJ set from Travis Beckum, an Oak Creek High School graduate and former football player at Wisconsin and in the NFL. The event will be held at Cedar Creek Park in Cedarburg.

Artists Kip Moore, Drake White and Janesville native Kirstie Kraus will perform Aug. 27, followed by performances from last year’s headliners Billy Currington, Easton Corbin and Frankie Ballard on Aug. 28.

Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. and artists will hit the stage at 5:45 p.m. Tickets bought last year can be used for the 2021 festival.

Two-day passes can be purchased for $109 at

Golf outing

This year also marks the first Country in the Burg Golf Outing on Sept. 27 at the River Club of Mequon, 12400 N. Ville Du Parc Drive.

The golf outing will benefit Children’s Wisconsin, the Wounded Warrior Project and Mel’s Charities. In 2019, the festival raised more than $50,000 for charities.

The event will host 36 groups of four. Registration costs $800 per group and must be submitted by Sept. 13 at

Check-in starts at 9 a.m. bloody marys and bottomless mimosas will be served until 10:30 a.m. Attendees can receive prizes, win raffle items and make bids in silent and live auctions. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served followed by a private concert at the end of the event.

Keeping children safe from polio

By S.R. Yogananda, past governor of District 3190 and 2011-14 regional Rotary Foundation coordinator

I had just come back from an assignment overseas in 1987 when I rejoined the Rotary Club of Bangalore East after an absence. I enjoyed the fellowship before meetings when I could connect with all my friends in one time and place. At one such meeting, one of our club leaders talked about Rotary’s top priority to eradicate polio and mentioned an upcoming immunization drive that Sunday.

But that Sunday, I had a wedding to attend of a friend of the family, who I knew would notice if I arrived late. At 06:30 that morning, I received a call from our polio committee chair, reminding me of the event. He was so convincing that I should volunteer that I said yes, even though I was not happy I would be missing the wedding.

When I arrived at the health center I found fellow Rotarians and friends wearing End Polio Now clothing waiting to get started. Some were accompanying health workers and cadets to various outreach centers where they were handing out packets of information. A vehicle with a loud speaker was announcing our immunization efforts, which were further communicated by large banners hanging overhead.

Meaningful Conversations
Meaningful Conversations

We continue a series of meaningful conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Our team of your fellow Rotarians have been planning these sessions and our goal is that through meaningful conversations we will experience growth, gain deeper understanding, and renew our commitment to fairness and justice.

A Rotarian member of our team will guide each conversation within small groups of  4-5 people.   Small groups will feedback appropriate and significant information to the whole group.

What can you do to get the most out of each conversation ?

  • Look forward to an exciting, encouraging, insightful experience.
  • Review the Rotary Statement on racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion found in our web page.
  • View recommended  videos, listed below, before or after our conversations.  They will provide background and  information to help us in making our conversations meaningful.
  • Actively listen and participate in each conversation with your fellow Rotarians
