Country Thunder returns this week

FLORENCE - The Pinal County Attorney’s Office would like to welcome the public back to Florence for the Country Thunder music festival this week.

We know there is a lot of anticipation for Country Thunder Arizona 2021. Due to the pandemic, this is the first time the event has taken place in Pinal County in more than two years. While we hope everyone has an exciting week, we also want to ensure those attending the festival make good choices.

“We want people to have fun, but everyone must remember that stupid decisions have real world consequences,” said County Attorney Kent Volkmer.

During the past two Country Thunder festivals, in 2018 and 2019, more than 100 people were cited for various incidents related to the event. Those include minor in possession, assault, disorderly conduct and DUI.

“Enjoy the party, but be sure to get home safe,” Volkmer said.

Country Thunder Arizona 2021 begins Thursday, October 14th.
