LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- It's almost July, which means it's almost August, which means it's time for the Kentucky State Fair.
This year's free concert series has been rebranded as the Texas Roadhouse concert series. All concerts begin at 8 pm except for Sunday, August 26, with a 4 pm start time. Gates open one and a half hours before the concert begins.
This year, the concerts will be hosted in a new spot next to Kentucky Kingdom called Bluegrass Village. The concert series used to be inside of Cardinal Stadium. The State Fair says that Bluegrass Village "highlights local craft breweries, bourbon distilleries, culinary and Kentucky retail."
All concerts are still free with admission to the State Fair. Here is the line up:
Gary Allan and Walker Montgomery - Aug. 16
112 and Midnight Star - Aug. 17
Great White, Vixen, and GoldylockS - Aug. 18
The Oak Ridge Boys, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers - Aug. 19
