Introducing the Kentucky State Fair’s New Texas Roadhouse Concert Series

All concerts are FREE

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 15, 2018) — The Kentucky State Fair announces the lineup of the all-new Texas Roadhouse Concert Series, which runs throughout the fair, Aug. 16-26. The series features a wide range of musical artists with a different concert every night, for a total of 26 bands. This year all concerts at the Kentucky State Fair are free with paid gate admission. Louisville-based Texas Roadhouse is a new sponsor to the Kentucky State Fair. 

 

“We are proud to be the presenting sponsor for the Kentucky State Fair Concert Series. Music and the State Fair go together like fresh rolls and honey cinnamon butter,” said Kent Taylor founder and CEO of Texas Roadhouse.

 

The Texas Roadhouse Concert Series debuts at Bluegrass Village, a new entertainment venue at the fair. Adjacent to Kentucky Kingdom, the new setting adds local food vendors, two stages and highlights a variety of Kentucky’s distilled and crafted beverages and products.

 

“Moving the concerts from Freedom Hall and Cardinal Stadium to a new entertainment area provides fairgoers a value-added experience,” said Dr. Mark Lynn, chairman of the Kentucky State Fair Board.  “And with Texas Roadhouse on board as a major entertainment sponsor enhances the experience for our 600,000 guests all eleven days of the fair.”
