Big Valley Jamboree: We’re deep into the herd now! Toby Keith and Billy Ray Cyrus were already on the bill Friday, but Saturday things kick off on main stage with Tanya Ryan at 1 p.m., Jade Eagleson at 2 p.m. and Meghan Patrick at 3:30 p.m. Then it’s the classic piano country sounds of Ronnie Milsap at 5 p.m., then High Valley at 7:30 p.m.! Finally, Old Dominion takes the stage at 9 p.m. — then head on over to the beer gardens for Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion at 10:30 p.m; James Barker Band at midnight and the Saloon House Band keeping it going from 1:30 a.m. on. Yep, there’s a reason BVJ has such a fine reputation for nonstop partying.

Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash: Or if you’re hoping to stay in the city, that doesn’t mean you can’t get close to the true beating heart of country music. More than two dozen of Johnny Cash’s songs are featured in a performance-packed musical adapted from the Broadway production by Richard Maltby Jr. and Jason Edwards. Run time is two hours including an intermission.
Details: 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at Citadel Theatre (9828 101A Ave.), $25 and up at citadeltheatre.com
Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat-Cereal Cartoon Party: It’s that special time when kids and kids-at-heart get to relive the exciting Saturday Morning ritual of non-stop retro cartoons, and binge on the multi-coloured sugary cereals! The cartoon lineup is always a mystery, but you’ll see both holiday faves and obscurities spanning the ’40s through the ’80s, all punctuated with vintage commercials and PSAs. 120 minutes, curated by Kier-La Janiesse. Pyjamas fully acceptable, especially if you’re actually wearing them!
