Next month’s Kentucky State Fair will include concerts from 24 bands over 11 nights.

The State Fair has announced the acts for the concert series from Aug. 20 to 30. All concerts are free with paid gate admission to the fair at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville.

Among the acts are Josh Turner on Aug. 20, Ginuwine and R&B group Color Me Badd on Aug. 21, and The Oak Ridge Boys with Lorrie Morgan on Aug. 23.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the concert area’s footprint has been more than doubled while the seating capacity has been reduced by more than half. Projector screens will be added in extended seating areas, and the spacing between seats and rows will be increased.

Tickets for the fair are on sale. Advance admission is $7 and advance parking is $5.
