The Colorado State Fair will be here before we know it — August 28th through September 7th. Colorado State Department of Agriculture Deputy Commissioner and acting Colorado State Fair General Manager Chris Wiseman shares the whose who of the fair’s entertainment.
Wiseman: “If you are in to country music, we’ve got a lot of country music this year: with Jake Owen, Tracy Lawrence, Jerrod Niemann, Chase Rice — tremendous acts. Three of those are with the PRCA rodeo. We have three nights of just rodeo — one of those nights is bull fights. We have monster trucks, demo derby. We have MMA fights to start out the fair on the first Friday. We also have Fiesta Day which is a tribute to our Hispanic Community of the Southwest where we will have Los Lonely Boys and what we call the Celebracion of the Charros which is the more the pageantry that goes on during a Mexican rodeo.We have Terry Fator is a Vegas act but he won America’s Got Talent. We have Three Days Grace which is a little bit harder rock and roll.”
Wiseman continues with what you can find at coloradostatefair.com
Wiseman: “To buy tickets to the fair, just go to our website and take the link to the Altitude Tickets and we have a very interactive system, thanks to Altitude Tickets where you can actually pick your seat. The sooner you get your tickets the better seat you will get.”
