Tickets on sale this week for State Fair concerts

Nov 14, 2017

Tickets go on sale this Friday for some concert events already booked for the 2018 Delaware State Fair.

State Fair officials have confirmed country music star Toby Keith for July 19th. On the 25th, it’s the Southern Uprising: "A Southern Rock Revival,” featuring Travis Tritt, Charlie Daniels, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Outlaws.

“Typically, it’s pretty rare for us to make a December announcement, but we were successful in confirming two of our acts, and so we’ll be offering tickets for folks to purchase for that special someone during the holidays,” said Aguilar.

287,632 thousand people were in attendance at this year’s fair in Harrington.

State Fair Assistant GM and Marketing Director Danny Aguilar says he hopes with acts like this they’ll see an even higher turnout next year.

“That’s certainly our goal. Mother Nature has a big part of making things easy sometimes or difficult. We we’re fortunate enough to have a nice mix of good weather last year.”

Tickets for Toby Keith range from $54 to $94, while Southern Uprising tickets cost between $31 and $71.
