Celebrated tribute band, Hairball returns to the Delaware County Fairgrounds Memorial Day Weekend!

Sunday, May 27 2012 make plans to see HAIRBALL!

The Delaware County Fair Society is thrilled for the return of the  regionally acclaimed tribute band, Hairball. Sunday, May 27, 2012, Hairball will be on stage in Manchester to kick off the summer Memorial Day weekend. Paying tribute to the glam “hair” bands of the late 80’s and early 90’s rock and roll, Hairball entertained this past May with music and a dramatic visual show that rocked the fairgrounds.

Delaware County Fairgrounds Manager Jeannie Domeyer said, “Hairball rocked the fairgrounds with the best rock and roll you’ve ever seen all in one place. This band is amazing covering bands such as Bon Jovi, Queen, Journey, Aerosmith, Poison, Guns N Roses and even a little Prince. They cover so many bands that they can’t cover them all in one show, I expect that this years’ show will be a change up from last May!”

Creedence Clearwater Revisited VIP at Delaware County Fair

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Delaware County Fair Announces Creedence Clearwater Revisited as VIP Concert for 2012 Fair.

Creedence Clearwater Revival

Creedence Clearwater Revival

A classic band with dozens of hits to their name is headed for Manchester to headline the VIP concert for the 2012 Delaware County Fair. Jeannie Domeyer, Manager of the Fair made the announcement of the VIP concert last Friday night at Manchester’s winter edition of the First Friday @ Five. Headlining the traditional Friday night VIP concert with their legendary American rock is Creedence Clearwater Revisited.

CCR, headlined by Stu Cook and Doug Clifford “Cosmo”, original CCR band members, bring back the meaning of the music as they originally played it. Having now toured North America, South America, Central America, New Zealand, Australia, Europe and Asia, knocking out audiences with astounding concerts jam packed with songs that are still a staple of radio and movie soundtracks, Creedence Clearwater Revisited has come a long way. “In the beginning Cosmo and I decided that if we could find the musicians that could capture the sound and recreate what the music was about, we’d do it,” recalls Stu.

Creedence Clearwater Revival had over 10 hits on Billboard’s top ten list including 5 #2 hits. No other bands have had more than that except for Elvis Presley and Madonna. Stu and Cosmo and their band Creedence Clearwater Revisited add a new chapter to their legacy with vibrant and exhilarating energy and pure American spirit. As the Hollywood Reporter’s music critic John Lappen wrote about a Creedence Clearwater Revisited concert in Los Angeles, “Their set was an amazing list of hit after hit that was done serious justice by the players involved.”

Seating for the VIP concert will include track seating at $60 which all you care to eat and drink with a full meal, beverages, wait staff and an area for dancing. Domeyer says, “This is our eleventh VIP concert, even the rain last year couldn’t stop the fun that happens during the concert atmosphere of VIP night at the Delaware County Fair!”

Tickets go on sale for this show on March 10th at 9:00 a.m. Tickets will be available at the Fair office, by calling 563.927-6449 or at www.delawarecofair.com.

Delaware Co. Fair wins two awards at International Convention

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012
Delaware County Fair,  Manager, Jeannie Domeyer

Delaware County Fair, Manager, Jeannie Domeyer

Manchester, IA: The Delaware County Fair was presented two awards at the annual meeting of Fairs and Expositions at Las Vegas in November. The awards were given in two different categories, agriculture and communications. First place was earned for the Fair’s going green project designed to teach consumers the environmental benefits of using bio-diesel. The Fair placed large green footprints throughout the fairgrounds with facts about the soy based product. Additionally the Fair used only soy diesel in their track equipment and implements used on the grounds.

The second award was received for the Fair’s marketing efforts. First place was received in the category of special promotional effort. The Delaware County Fair used promotional yard signs to promote the dates of the Fair. These signs, designed by Manchester Signs, were placed in yards to surprise the homeowner with free tickets for the Fair. After receiving the sign in their yard, the homeowner was asked to move the portable sign and surprise their friends and family with free tickets to the Fair too. This promotion was considered a unique, grassroots approach to marketing the Fair by the staff of the International Association of Fairs and Expositions based in Springfield, MO. The yard sign idea was created by Jeannie Domeyer, manager of the Fair in Manchester.

The awards were presented to Domeyer in November where more than 2500 fair managers and board members met at the convention for Fairs from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Australia and Korea. The Fair’s awards were given in the division of Fairs with attendance less than 100,000.  The 2012 edition of the Delaware County Fair is July 9-15th.
