Josh Turner, Ginuwine headline Kentucky State Fair's concert series

The concerts are free with admission to the fair. Tickets are now available via Ticketmaster and select Kentucky Kroger locations.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Kentucky State Fair announced the lineup for their Texas Roadhouse Concert Series. The free concert series will run all 11 days of the fair and feature 24 musical artists, including Josh Turner, Ginuwine and The Oak Ridge Boys.

The concerts are free with admission to the fair. Tickets are now available via Ticketmaster and select Kentucky Kroger locations.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Kentucky State Fair Board submitted a proposal to modify this year’s fair. That plan was approved by the Healthy At Work initiative. 

The fair website details their COVID-19 Plan. Some of those modifications will impact the concert series. The concert changes include:

  • Increasing the footprint of the concert area from 1.9 to 5.19 acres.
  • Reduce the capacity to 42% of the 2019 capacity.
  • Several projector screens will be added to allow for an extended seating area.
  • Spacing of concert seating will go from 32-inch rows to 6 feet rows and 10 feet cross aisles.
  • Concert area will be set up to comply with social distancing guidelines.
