The opening night of the 2015 Fair (Sunday, July 12) will conclude with a concert by the band Spearpoint at 8p.m., who will energetically hit the stage with a wide variety of music, ranging from surf songs to the Beatles, The Who, and a little southern rock, all played with band’s own bit of edginess. The group has performed at Great American Ball Park, the Kentucky Speedway, Sawyer Point, and many other local venues.

Spearpoint consists of Spencer St. Pierre on vocals, lead, and rhythm guitar, Augie Giambrone on lead and rhythm guitar and vocals, Jack Miller on bass guitar, Ethan Adams on drums and percussion, and Elyssa Girtman on vocals and keyboards. Hang around on the first night of the fair for a unique music experience.

To conclude the activities on Tuesday, July 14, the Christian sounds of Finding Favour will fill the center ring.

The Finding Favour show will begin in the center ring at 7:30 p.m.

Country music fans will delight in the closing act on Saturday, July 18 as Noah Smith, described as a “modern day country rock Springsteen,” will perform at 8 p.m. in the center ring.
