State Fair Entertainment Lineup Nearly Ready

Posted: Updated:

A bitterly cold winter no doubt has many of us ready to get outside and enjoy the outdoors a bit...

Many look forward to this.

The North Dakota State Fair and the grandstand acts that make their way to Minot each summer.

So who is coming this year?

That remains a mystery.

Fair officials say they are close to releasing the line-up -- in fact the country show pass is complete, and one rock concert is booked.

They are simply trying to lock down one final rock concert and then the announcement can be made...and tickets sold.

(Renae Korslien - NDSF Manager) "It takes a couple of weeks. The artists all have to approve exactly what we are going to release and what pictures so it will take a few weeks after we know but we still plan on putting tickets on sale in March."

Korslien spent last week in Nashville working with booking agents trying to lock down a final rock concert for this summer's fair...but unfortunately came back home without a deal in place.
