The Muskingum County Fair Board announced the big talent they’re bringing in this year…

American Idol alum Kellie Pickler will be performing at the fair on Friday, August 17th. Fair Board Secretary Doug Guinsler said having well-known talent brings in more business.

"We’ve been very fortunate the last few years to be able to secure some pretty big names, we think. We’re trying to continue on with Kellie, of course she was on American Idol, and we’re really excited about all that," said Guinsler.

Pickler will be performing near the end of fair week. But Guinsler said there will be plenty of activities for fair-goers to enjoy while they wait.

"We’re just hoping for weather like we got right now. Hoping everybody will come out and be with us. We realize the gas prices are going to be high, so maybe they can stay home and come out and enjoy the fair. We do have some, several different special days with reduced prices to get in and just hope everybody will bring their family and come out and see the fair."

Tickets for the concert will be available through the fair’s website, beginning April 14th at 9 a.m.
