TULARE – In order to celebrate its big centennial, the Tulare County Fair has made big improvements to its concert venue.
The Bud Light stage area now features all-new giant video screens and can seat up to 1,500 concert-goers, thanks to the support of presenting sponsor Eagle Mountain Casino. The Marshall Tucker Band will break in the new concert venue with its tried-and-true Southern sound on Wednesday, Sept. 11. The Marshall Tucker Band is known for its long and successful career with hits such as “Heard It in a Love Song,” “Can’t You See,” “Fire on the Mountain,” and “Long Hard Ride.” The band has enjoyed a long and successful history with its mix of rock, blues, jazz, country, soul and bluegrass.
The concert is free with gate admission to the fair.
The Tulare County Fair will run Sept. 11-15, offering more than 100 free things to do, a look back at the fair’s 100 years, five days of free entertainment for the family, educational activities for children, the annual Junior Livestock Auction on Sunday, Sept. 15, and more.
