The Delaware State Fair Entertainment Lineup Features Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Ke$ha, Miranda Cosgrove, Three Days Grace, Big Time Rush

There’s nothing like the Delaware State Fair. Running July 21-30 in Harrington, it’s equal parts boardwalk-style amusements and celebration of all that is agrarian. Shop on the Midway for leather crafts, Western hats and more. Ride the Giant Wheel for a great view of the fairgrounds, or go for thrills on the Ring of Fire loop. Test your skills in a horseshoe pitching contest, have your youngster test his strength in the tractor pull—with pedal toys—or see who can make the most fantastic creation from Lego building blocks. Take in a show of goats and sheep, horses and ponies, hogs, poultry, rabbits and dairy cows. Enjoy a delicious chicken dinner in Grange Hall before the tractor parade. Most of all, see the grandstand entertainment. There is always a monster truck show (July 21 this year) and demolition derby (July 29), as well as exciting headline acts. This year’s schedule includes Canadian rockers Three Days Grace on July 22, Nickelodeon stars Big Time Rush on July 24 and Miranda Cosgrove on July 27, country stars Toby Keith on July 25, Josh Turner on July 28 and Alan Jackson on July 30, and pop singer Ke$ha July 26.
