CADOTT, Wis. (WEAU) – While country music fans get ready to see of their favorite artists, there are lines for the music, getting into the campsite and also the vendors.

Among the vendors at Country Fest, Rosy’s taco stand has a “cult following,” according to organizers of Fest.

We spoke to the owner of Rosy’s and he says the business has been around since the beginning of Country Fest. The original owner of Rosy’s had a restaurant in Chippewa Falls and started the vending business. The taco biz has been at the same spot at Fest year after year so fans know where to go to get their favorite tacos.

There are plenty of other food vendors including areas to get a new country getup, including cowboy hats, purses, belts, dresses and shirts.

Also new this year, the Party Pit where fans can get up close and personal with their favorite artists. The idea is to get right in front of the stage in an area below ground level, so that VIP seating view won’t be blocked. But fans will be literally just a few inches from the musicians.

Getting a pass is easy to do. Radio stations at Country Fest are promoting Party Pit tickets and they can also be purchased at the ticket booth.

Organizers said the Party Pit is something artists have always wanted because it gives some of the biggest fans a chance to rock out with them close to the stage. Blake Shelton’s Party Pit was completely sold out, we’re told.
