When gates open Friday admission is free.
The 150th Great Frederick Fair begins today! General Manager Beck Brashear says she's seen an uptick in ticket sales. "Sales, I think in general, are going very well for those. We've tried to, and we've been very successful in booking entertainment that is affordable for folks and they can stay local and not go down the road so much," said Brashear.
You still have time to get your tickets for most of the live entertainment, but Brashear said it's cutting pretty close for Scotty McCreery's show. "He doesn't have many seats left on the track, but there are certainly a lot of good seats left in the grandstand," continued Brashear. McCreery is scheduled to perform Friday, September 21.
Admission to the fair Friday is free. "We will have a canned food drive campaign. It's called 'Fill the Wheel'. Patrons are asked to bring a non-perishable canned food item. The area's 9 food banks are in need to help stock their shelves," said Brashear.
The fair will run September 14-22 at the E-ventplex at the Frederick Fairgrounds.
