Okay, we’re a little behind on the announcement. My bad. However, we know you’re already excited for this year’s Grandstand entertainment lineup. Lots of talent and tons of energy await you!
Our grandstand has been the centerpiece of the fair’s live entertainment over the years, featuring nationally touring artists from many different genres. This year’s grandstand entertainment will not disappoint! The grandstand is an outdoor venue, facing East and is partially covered in the stands. Tickets are available online and at the box office (located at the Arena Building on the south side and open 9a – 3p M-F).
This year’s live music includes national Christian artists Francesca Battistelli, sponsored by KHIS Radio 89.9/107.9. Playing in support of Natalie will be Jason Crabb, performing on Tuesday evening starting at 7. Wednesday, we’ll see iconic country music group Sawyer Brown take the stage beginning at 8:00 pm. The live music segment of the grandstand entertainment will conclude with the Little River Band on Thursday night at 8.
Monday evening sees the Heartland Idol competition on the Grandstand stage, featuring some VERY talented regional artists who have competed for this shot to perform. Interested in giving it a shot? Open auditions for the Heartland Idol will be held Saturday, July 13th at the Osage Center in Cape starting at 10am and at Sikeston River Radio on Saturday, July 20th at 10am.
In addition to the live music at the grandstand, the Activities Tent will feature several regional and local artists performing throughout the week, as well. Have a taste of some local/regional flavor. These concerts are included in your gate admission!
See YOU at the Fair!
