County Fair music rocks...and blues...and Celts
The Hamilton County Fair is coming to town this weekend with a host of local musicians for entertainment. Divided into two stages and spanning two days, more than 20 bands will be playing during the fair.
There’s a genre for everyone here: R&B, rock n’ roll, country, bluegrass, even Celtic. With free performances from this many local acts, you can’t afford to miss this weekend’s event. The fair is held on Dallas Island in Chester Frost Park.
Along with the excellent music, you can check out bungee jumps, dance and gymnastics, antique cars and tractors, educational exhibits, tons of vendors, and even a petting zoo. Go jam out to some locals, pet a goat—and still be home in time for dinner.
