It's not too late to get your tickets to the Freeborn County Fair, and their amazing line-up of entertainment. Now, the Freeborn County Fair is not a free fair, but, with the cost of admission, you get into the Grandstand shows for free. Where else can you see big name artists, and up and coming artists, for $10?

The Freeborn County Fair runs from July 31st to August 5th, and it's a short drive from Owatonna. I may be biased since I grew up in Albert Lea, but, I have always enjoyed the fair there.

In 2018, these are the acts that are scheduled:

  • Tuesday, July 31st; Easton Corbin and The Voice's Casi Joy, playing at 7:30 pm (County music)
  • Wednesday, August 1st; Chubby Checker & The Wildcats, at 8:30 pm (Oldies)
  • Thursday, August 2nd; Dylan Scott, at 8:30 pm (Country)
  • Friday, August 3rd; Kip Winger, Warrant, and April Wine, at 8 pm (80's Rock)
  • Saturday, August 4th; Trace Adkins, at 8:30 pm (Country)
  • Sunday, August 5th; The Demo Derby, at 4 pm

There is something for just about everyone this year, and don't forget the midway, when you are enjoying the show, your kids can be on the rides.
