The Great Frederick Fair continues to bring the BEST entertainment to Frederick County!” explains Jim Grimes, Chair of the Entertainment Committee. This year we are expanding our entertainment to include the sensational Darci Lynne and Friends LIVE, a young female ventriloquist who received more votes than anyone ever to win America’s Got Talent. This night will be great for the entire family! We have also brought track seating back for every concert, added annex seat pricing and have a tremendous lineup of Country, Classic Rock, Motorsports and Contemporary Christian music.
“Last year, we received a lot of concerns about three concerts that had standing room only on our track. Each artist set the restrictions on how they want their concerts to be set up. This year, while it may have limited who we could bring to Frederick, we made certain that we answered the concerns of our patrons; this year, there are track seats for every music concert. Two concerts do have a standing room only OPTION in a certain area so that guests can choose to stand up and dance (which the artists really like and feed off of that energy on stage),” the fair shared in its press release.

A lot has changed since his last appearance. Say’s McCreery, “I’ve lived a lot of life since my last record.” “I moved out on my own, I travelled across the country and the world, I got engaged, I was dropped by my label, I was even robbed at gunpoint. So, I really wanted this album to show who Scotty is at 24, what’s going on in my life, and I think we accomplished that.” Scotty’s new album, Season’s Change proves that with the smashing success of the first song released, “Five More Minutes” and now, “This Is It” tells the story of how McCreery proposed to Gabi Dugal last September.
