The Hop Country Music Festival is scheduled for the weekend of September 9 at the SOZO Sports Complex located at 2200 S 36th Ave, Yakima, WA 98903. This weekend was formerly reserved for Chinook Fest, which is now being moved to the weekend of June 10 through June 12.

All proceeds from the event are going toward fees that empower SOZO Sports athletes across soccer, football, and lacrosse to compete and reach for their dreams. Tickets for this highly-anticipated event go on sale beginning June 3.
