We've got some big country music fans on the Cenex® team, so when we got the chance to join more than 170,000 country enthusiasts from across the Midwest this summer, you can believe we brought the boot-stomping. For the fifth year, Cenex powered the fun at both Country Jam USA in Eau Claire, Wis., and Kicker Country Stampede in Manhattan, Kan.
Leading up to the festivals, Cenex Facebook followers and local radio listeners won free tickets with full access to the exclusive Cenex tent. And did they get the VIP treatment! Not only did these lucky guests get to see the show up close, but they also got to sit in on exclusive performer interviews and enter raffles for backstage passes, meet-and-greets, fuel gift cards and more. Overall, more than 140 tickets were given away on local radio stations, and 10 customers were surprised with tickets at area Cenex stores the first day of each festival.
Our giveaways were only the beginning. Onsite, our Cenex street team had fun surprises in store for everyone. Across the festival grounds, the team gave out koozies and cowboy hats, served up refreshments from the Cenex sweet and salty machine and lemonade-filled beverage jet pack, and even launched more than 1,000 custom-designed tank tops from our T-shirt cannon.
It's hard to believe another summer of boot-stomping has already come to a close. Thanks to all our guests for making the 2018 music festival season one to remember. No matter where your next destination lies, though, you can always find Cenex stations conveniently on your way using our LOCATION FINDER.
