Manager Jeannie Domeyer said, “who would have thought we’d be waiting to see if we could build based on the snow forecast in May. We’re really excited to be making progress on this building and are so blessed to have a group of generous material suppliers and contractors who are donating portions to help make this project happen.”

We aim to be diverse in our entertainment so that our whole county has something they can enjoy at each fair.”

Ms. Domeyer reports this year will include a canned food drive as part of the Christian show.
“We feel this is a great venue to spread the word about giving back. The fair would like to give back to the community by sponsoring this food drive. Please bring a food item with you to the concert. All donations will be given to the Delaware County Food Pantry.”

Tickets for this concert will be free with your price of admission to the Fair. Adult admission is $10 and children 11 and under are $3.

Delaware County Fair Announces Justin Moore As Country Concert for 2013 Fair

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

One of country music’s hottest new acts is headed for Manchester to headline the Country concert for the 2013 Delaware County Fair.

He followed that with a top 15 hit and brought a second number 1 hit with his release of “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away”. His current single, from his current album Outlaws Like Us, “Til My Last Day” is sitting at number 12 and headed upwards. Justin’s fans have found this album filled with songs that stay true to his roots, some hard rocking kick ass cuts and some that show a slightly softer side. Named the 2009 Billboard Magazine Best Male Country Artist was just the beginning for this young man from small town Poyen, Arkansas.

Moore will be in Manchester on Thursday, July 11th. Seating for this concert will include track seating at $35 with premium seating of the first 8 rows in the center at $50. The premium seats will come with three complimentary drink tickets to be used during the show.
