DU QUOIN, Ill. (WEHT) — In less than 100 days, Du Quoin will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of their state fair! Six concerts have been announced for their highly anticipated Pepsi Mid America River Radio Grandstand that runs during the fair.

“We are 100 days out from the 100th Du Quoin State Fair and could think of no better way to celebrate this milestone than by opening up the box office,” said Du Quoin Fair Manager Josh Gross. “We encourage everyone to come out to the grounds and purchase concert tickets and enjoy a variety of fair-themed foods. Food is available for purchase beginning at 11am with Tipsy Pig and Salty Boar on the grounds.”

This year, the Du Quoin State Fair says they are excited to welcome Cole Swindell, I Love the 90’s, Randy Houser, Jordan Davis, Chase Rice, and Jeff Foxworthy to the Pepsi Mid America River Radio Grandstand stage. Officials say an additional headliner will be announced in the coming weeks.

A supporting act has been added to the lineup. Award-winning duo Maddie & Tae will join Jordan Davis on Tuesday, August 30. The life longtime friends and music collaborators, Maddie Font and Taylor Kerr are coming off a number one debut of their album “The Way It Feels”, which includes the Platinum-certified number one country radio hit, “Die From A Broken Heart”.
