The Toronto Blue Jays are fixin’ a long Country Weekend party at Rogers Centre on Friday, May 20 (7:07 p.m.) and Saturday, May 21 (3:07 p.m.), as the team takes on the Cincinnati Reds. Tickets are available now at bluejays.com/promotions.
Fans looking for ways to spend their long weekend in the city can expect a toe tappin’ good time at the ballpark, headlined by pre and in-game performances in the WestJet Flight Deck by Tyler Joe Miller and Don Amero on Friday, and JoJo Mason on Saturday. In addition, the first 15,000 fans to enter Rogers Centre on Friday will receive a Blue Jays Army Green Hat giveaway.
Back for the first time since 2019, the WestJet Flight Deck, as well as Gate 9A, will be converted into a country do-si-do with line dancing; Western-inspired activities; saloon seating; Berringer wine and Bud Light Seltzer sampling; and of course, pre and in-game performances by three Canadian country stars making their Rogers Centre debuts.
- Tyler Joe Miller has quickly made a name for himself as the first independent Canadian country artist to reach #1 at radio with their first two singles (‘Pillow Talkin’’ and ‘I Would Be Over Me Too’). Following his debut EP Sometimes I Don’t, But Sometimes I Do, Miller is now back in the studio working on new music to be released later this year.
- An engaging storyteller, singer-songwriter, and performer, three-time JUNO Award nominee Don Amero has been tirelessly touring, performing, and speaking across Canada for the last decade. Amero, who is of Cree and Métis heritage, has taken the skills he utilizes on stage and applied them to his advocacy work within Indigenous communities and beyond. Last fall, Amero delivered his latest EP Nothing Is Meaningless.
- Since breaking into the Canadian country music scene more than six years ago, JoJo Mason’s career is already full of highlights, earning five Top 10 singles, multiple CCMA Award and BCCMA Award nominations, and an impressive 28M global streams to date. After touring the country last year, Mason released his latest single ‘Broken Umbrella’ and a seven song EP Sky Full Of Stars.
In addition to two boot stompin’ days of music, the Blue Jays are joined by Canadian singer-songwriters Olivia Mae Graham (Friday) and Kelly Prescott (Saturday) to perform the national anthems. Hot off hosting the finale of Canada’s Got Talent, country star Lindsay Ell throws the first pitch on Friday, with Canadian country artist Dallas Smith taking the ball on Saturday.
Beyond Country Weekend, families can look forward to another Jr. Jays Sunday on May 22 (1:37 p.m.), featuring fun programming around the stadium and kids aged 14 and under are invited to run the bases like the pros post game for free!
