Hold on to your tickets, Kansas State Fair fans. All 2020 Nex-Tech Wireless Grandstand events have been rescheduled for 2021.
Yes, that means hip-hop rapper Nelly is back, along with teen ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer and an all-star lineup that includes classic rockers, country hitmakers, and high-flying motorsports.
The 2020 Fair was canceled due to concerns from COVID-19. Fair officials have been working to reschedule the entire entertainment lineup, said Fair Interim General Manager David Tobias. All tickets already purchased will be honored at the gate.
“This means your seat location will be safe for 2021,” Tobias said, adding. “We have a strong lineup, and we are excited we were able to secure all of our artists for next year’s Fair.”
Tickets will go back on sale in October. More information will be available on the Fair’s website, www.kansasstatefair.com.
