The 2018 Tulare County Fair is destined to be one of the best. The five-day extravaganza opens on Sept. 12 and runs through Sept. 16.
Pamela Fyock, CEO of the Tulare County Fair, said, “We have a fantastic fair planned for 2018. We have new family entertainment included with admission, an impressive free headliner concert lineup, and discounts for those who buy their carnival and admission tickets in advance of opening day. The biggest savings is for those who buy online by July 31.”
Pennie Rorex, Fyock’s assistant favorite is the Fair Food. “Oh my goodness, we can hardly wait to sink our teeth into a batter-dipped corn dog, a fried avocado taco, and chocolate-dipped cheese cake on a stick. The list of savory and sweet treats is endless—these are just a few examples of our many favorites.”
An endless schedule of family entertainment that comes with the price of admission includes two circuses, camel, pony and train rides, petting zoo, Steve Bayner Hypnotist Show, Buttercup the Cow and a puppet theater just to name a few.
According to Rorex, new this year to the fair for free entertainment is The Canine Stars. Rescue dogs participate in “extreme sports” such as dock diving, free style Frisbee disc, flyball racing, high-jumping and dog agility. The dogs and trainers have competed and placed in national and world champion events.
Also new to the free entertainment line-up is the Ramos Brothers Circus. Exhilarating motorcycle dare devils and an amazing flying trapeze routines will have audiences at the edge of their seats. For a link to all the entertainment go to http://tcfair.org/entertainment_line-up.php
Schedules of performances are available at the fair’s entrance.
The most anticipated of the fair’s entertainment is the concert series. Country music icon Clay Walker was the final act to be announced for the Tulare County Fair’s 2018 concert series. Walker’s concert is slated for Sept. 13 at 8pm on the Budweiser Stage. All concerts are included with the price of fair admission.
“Clay Walker knows how to please an audience,” said Pamela Fyock, chief executive officer of the Tulare County Fair. “On stage or in the recording studio, Clay never gives less than a hundred percent and we are delighted to bring this caliber of talent to our fair.”
The Tulare County Fair’s 2018 concert dates start with Sheila E. on Sept. 12, Clay Walker Sept. 13, Con Funk Shun Sept. 14, Queen Nation Sept.15, and Smash Mouth Sept. 16.
