For the first time in its history, the Kansas State Fair will be offering a more intimate concert experience on Tuesday and Thursday night during the 10-day event — and it's free.
Two up-and-coming country acts will headline the new free series at Bretz and Young Injury Lawyers Arena. Mason Ramsey, the 12-year-old “Little Hank Williams,” will perform Tuesday, Sept. 10. Lindsay Ell, this year’s Country Music Association’s Newcomer of the Year nominee, will take the stage Thursday, Sept. 12, with special guest Madison Kozak. Both concerts start at 7:30 p.m.
Ell’s concert is sponsored by First Choice Communications, an authorized AT&T Retailer.
“These two concerts are on us,” said the Fair’s General Manager Robin Jennison. “After decades of Tuesday and Thursday grandstand concerts, the Fair decided to move those shows to Bretz and Young Injury Lawyers Arena where fairgoers can get a more close-up intimate experience with entertainers.”
This new venue will have the same beverage amenities available at the grandstand. Beer sales in the arena will start at 6 p.m. and end at the end of the show. Food vendors will also be available nearby. Seating is first come, first serve. Fairgoers will be able to stand in front of the stage or take a seat in the stands.
