Delaware County Fair Announces Their Christian Concert Entertainer

Friday, April 12th, 2013
Sidewalk Prophets

Sidewalk Prophets

The Delaware County Fair is excited to announce the entertainer for the Christian Concert held Wednesday, July 10th at the 2013 Delaware County Fair. Up and coming group, The Sidewalk Prophets will headline this year’s Christian entertainment.

Sidewalk Prophets toured with Jeremy Camp and Audio Adrenaline on the strength of independent albums, then rode the popularity of their first Word Records release, These Simple Truths, to a Dove Award for Best New Artist and a nomination for Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year. “The Words I Would Say” hit #3, “You Can Have Me” went Top 20, a Christmas single, “Hope Was Born This Night,” hit the Top 10, and “You Love Me Anyway” went all the way to #1 on the Billboard Christian Singles chart. The band has toured with the Rock and Worship Roadshow with MercyMe and Francesca Battistelli, among others, and landed another Dove nomination for Group of the Year in 2011.

The Delaware County Fair has a mission to have something for everyone at each Fair. According to Jeannie Domeyer, Manager of the Delaware County Fair, “The Christian concerts have helped fill part of that goal by bringing in entertainment for fair-goers that might have been underserved in the past. 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.

Brandon Heath headlines tonight DCF Christian Concert

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Christian Singer, Brandon Heath will perform tonight at the Delaware County Fair

The Delaware County Fair Board is pleased to announce Christian singer/songwriter Brandon Heath will headline tonight’s, Wednesday, July 11, 2012, at the Delaware County Fair in Manchester, Iowa! This will be a FREE concert with gate admission in the festival area of the fairgrounds.
Brandon Heath first hit popular notoriety with the release of his 2008 single “Give Me Your Eyes”. This song made Christian music fans sit up and take notice of not only the content of his writing but of the voice behind it. Heath’s efforts were rewarded in 2009 and 2010 as he was named Male Vocalist of the Year in both years by the Gospel Music Association.
Heath has now released a new album “Leaving Eden” featuring the song “Your Love.” The concept of “Leaving Eden” speaks to a new awareness in Heath’s life, as well as a continuation of his career-long focus on reconciliation. “Leaving Eden represents an important step forward for Heath as an artist, as a singer, as a chronicler of the world around him. Throught this remarkable collection of songs, he reminds us – moment by moment, decision by decision – of the hope given to us. Althought we often may feel the weight of the world pushing in, by looking back and leaning on the One who created us, we can truly experience that burden lifted.

Lindsay McCaul will open tonight's Brandon Heath Concert

Lindsay McCaul will open the Brandon Heath concert. McCaul’s talent was brought to the attention when
she released her label debut, If It Leads Me Back, Jan. 17, 2012. The up-and-comer has already received much national attention during her short time on the music scene, with TLC reality program “Say Yes To The Dress: Atlanta” inviting McCaul to perform “Take My Hand,” from her new release, on the program. Additionally, Mark Hall, frontman for platinum-selling band Casting Crowns, asked McCaul to open on the group’s “Come to the Well” tour last fall and this spring.

This free concert is the fifth in a series of annual Christian artists at the Delaware County Fair. For more information about this concert, and other events and attractions of the 2012 Delaware County Fair, contact Jeannine Domeyer at (563) 927-6449 or delcofair@iowatelecom.net.

Next Up: Delaware County Fair Food

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Delaware County Fair, IowaWhen one thinks of fair the taste of biting into something sweet and deep-fried often comes to mind.  This year’s Delaware County Fair fair has all sorts of varieties of foods to tempt your taste buds. Funnel Cakes are a fair favorite and this year adding red velvet ones to the mix will be sure to excite the kid in everyone.  Deep fried food is always a hit and makes people think of all the odd combinations of fried food fairs offer including; deep fried PB &J, Twinkies and this year deep fried cookie dough!  Fair Manager Jeannie Domeyer tried these wonderful delights while attending the Florida State Fair and she commented,

“They are little bites of heaven.  The cookie dough in the center melts and it’s like eating warm cookie dough with the added bonus of fried sweet breading around.  They are a must try!”–Jeannie Domeyer, Delaware County Fair Manager.

Eating a meal at the fair is a good option as well. You can find anything from Italian sausages, to gyros to corn dogs. The Feast at First Lutheran Foodstand and 4-H Foodstand have a ton of options including tenderloins, ribeye steak sandwiches and a favorite of many, the taco salad. But no meal at the fair is complete without an ice-cold lemonade to wash it down.  Fresh squeezed lemonade is Delaware County’s favorite drink during the second week in July. Come see what other exciting and delightful food the Delaware County Fair has to offer this year.

This year’s edition of the Delaware County Fair will take place July 9th-15th.  Hope to see you there!
