The June 20th Jasper County Fair Results Are In!
The Winners and Runners-up at eight regional contests (listed below held and county fairs throughout the state) will participate in a final contest on August 2016 during the Illinois State Fair. The winner of that final contest will then perform ahead of Little Big Town and opener David Nail later that evening. Also the winner will perform at the Du Quoin State Fair ahead of a show not yet announced.
Only solo acts are allowed, and participants must be 18 years of age, or older. Pre-registration on the Illinois State Fair website is recommended, as at each regional contest there is a limited number of spots open for contestants.
Exposed Publishing, NFP will have staff at a majority of the fairs covering the event. During the State Fair our staff will be on site doing live reports all 10 days of the event!
