The Kentucky State Fair Concert Series
Welcome to the beginning of 8 days of great music! The Kentucky State Fair Concert Series offers an age versatile variety of free concerts every year. This year, like every year there will be an entertaining line up of musical stars that are sure to get your toes tapping.
Kicking off the free concert series will be a blast from the past with 80’s rockers Cinderella and Sebastian Bach on August 16th at 8pm. If you loved that era, than this will remind you why. These classic rockers will be performing their greatest hits in Cardinal Stadium for all to enjoy.
All R&B, Country and Southern Rock fans will be happy to hear Keith Sweat and Robbie Bartlett on the 17th, and Hot Chelle Rae and Neon Hitch on the 18th. The renowned Oak Ridge Boys with Jimmy Fortune will be swooning the crowds on the 19th, and Ronnie Milsap along with BJ Thomas will remind us what made country music famous on the 21st. Justin Moore with Colt Ford will be wrapping up the country stars on the 25th.
If you and the family like a more upbeat sound you may enjoy the Newsboys with their special guest Sanctus Real on August 20th. The Happy Together Tour will also be a great performance for all ages as a star studded line up hits the stage. Viewers will get to see the Turtles, Grass Roots, Gary Puckett, the Buckinghams and Micky Dolenz for a taste of folk and blues on the 23rd. Any teens in the family might enjoy Young the Giant with special guest We Barbarians on the 24th.
All of these concerts are free to the public with paid admission to the fair. The concerts began at 8pm and gates open at 6:30 for those who want the best seats.
