Battle of the Bands is Coming to the Rice County Fair

The Rice County Fair starts Tuesday night at 5PM in Faribault. That exciting, whirlwind week of carnival rides, games, food and shows that feature Enduro Auto Races, Great Frontier Bull Riding, the NTPA Truck and Tractor Pull, the Demolition Derby and new to the grandstand line-up this year is the Battle of the Bands at 7PM on Wednesday, July 20. This contest will pit bands from all over the community as well as the surrounding communities and states against each other in a head-to-head battle to see who has the best chops and licks at the Rice County Fair.

Some of the rules include: you must have a three-piece band consisting of a singer, guitarist and drummer. You should also have three to five songs ready to showcase your band’s talents. They’re shooting for 10 bands to compete. The more groups that are involved, the fewer songs you’ll have to perform and vice versa. The winning band will be the featured band Friday night, August 12, at the Blue Collar BBQ and Arts Pre-Festival in downtown Faribault.

If you think your group has what it takes to take on some of the area’s best bands, then go to or call (507) 332-2470. Don’t forget to bring your cheering section of family, friends, fans and groupies and be ready to rock the Rice County Fair!
