2016 CCMA Awards Show a Hot Ticket for London, Ontario


Tickets for Canadian country music’s biggest night, the CCMA Awards Show, will be available just in time for the holiday season. The Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) takes the 2016 CCMA Awards Show to London, Ontario this fall. Tickets for this nationally broadcast production, to be staged at Budweiser Gardens in downtown London on Sunday, September 11, go on sale next Friday, December 4, at 12:00 p.m. ET.

Tickets can be purchased online at budweisergardens.com, by calling 1-866-455-2849, or by visiting the Budweiser Gardens Box Office (99 Dundas Street, London, ON). Prices are $79.50 and $99.50 including HST (facility fees and service charges extra). Tickets are for all ages, reserved seating.

“We’re excited to shine the spotlight on London, Ontario when the 35th annual CCMA Awards Show is staged at Budweiser Gardens for the very first time,” said Don Green, President of the CCMA. “As the culmination of Country Music Week, a family reunion of sorts for the Canadian country music industry, London can expect to see the brightest stars from the country music scene. I encourage everyone to get their tickets early as we anticipate a sold out show.”

“The CCMA Awards Show is a premier event for London as the growth of country music thrives in Southwestern Ontario. Country Music Week will be the largest entertainment event the city has ever hosted, and the first time a nationally broadcasted awards show will be live from London at Budweiser Gardens,” said Chris Campbell, Chair of the 2016 London Host Committee. “London and the surrounding area will embrace the entire event as an incredible opportunity to showcase our world class venues and talent to connect fans, artists and the industry to our community.”

Performers and presenters for the 2016 CCMA Awards Show will be announced next summer.
