Grammy-nominated country music artist Jeremy McComb brings his infectious, high-energy “Ramblers and Road Dogs Tour” to the 108th Wyoming State Fair in Douglas August 13 at 5:00pm (gate admission required, no ticket necessary). Called a modern day troubadour, McComb has been touring for the past decade performing more than 170 shows a year for sold out audiences from coast to coast. Fair organizers will adhere to strict CDC social distancing guidelines.  
 
McComb’s self-released album, “FM,” caught fire and has surpassed over 1.1 million streams across digital streaming platforms. A talented singer/songwriter whose background includes tour managing comedy icon, Larry the Cable Guy, McComb has written songs for projects selling over 6 million copies and also contributed songs to several movie soundtracks.
 
Newly signed to Nashville indie-powerhouse label, Average Joes Entertainment, McComb has been in the studio recording his new album scheduled for release in 2021.

In addition to being a touring musician, he has worked in radio as a music director and tour managed comedy sensation, Larry The Cable Guy. His album/EP reses include “My Side of Town” (2008), which yielded the Billboard charting single, “Cold”; “Leap And The Net Will Appear” (2011); and “FM” (2016).

As the Wyoming State Fair is fast approaching, we are excited to announce a new opportunity for first time youth exhibitors at this year’s event! Luckily, the educational opportunities and exhibitions for Wyoming youth won’t stop at the state fair. This year the FAIR Posse will be granting scholarships as an incentive for those who would like to continue on with their work during local and state fairs. These ten scholarships, each in the amount of $150.00, will be given only to those competing in the 2020 Wyoming State Fair. If you or someone you know may be interested, there will be a short scholarship application posted on the Wyoming State Fair website and distributed to your Wyoming extension offices, Wyoming FFA, as well as the county fair offices.  The applications must be delivered to FAIR Posse by email, or mail, no later than August 1, 2020. The scholarships will be distributed by a FAIR Posse member to the successful applicants upon their arrival at the Wyoming State Fair. 

Please direct any questions concerning the scholarship to the FAIR Posse at fairposse1997@gmail.com. We cannot wait to see you at the 2020 Wyoming State Fair, August 11-15!

The Wyoming State Fair is thrilled to announce this year’s 2020 Grandstand Entertainment Lineup. On Thursday, August 13, the Wyoming State Fairgrounds will be filled with the distinct sounds of music headliner, Reckless Kelly, featuring Jeremy McComb.

Tickets go on sale July 3rd

For nearly 25 years, Reckless Kelly has graced the musical landscape with a high-powered form of Americana, equally rooted in raw passion, refined musicianship, and gritty authenticity. With the dual release of two new albums—American Jackpot and American Girls—the Idaho-bred band presents a beautifully detailed portrait of their beloved country, turning their nuanced songwriting to its many glories and tragedies. This Grammy-winning group soulfully combines deep roots of rock and country influences, entertaining crowds from coast-to-coast. 

Jeremy McComb is a fiercely independent Nashville based recording artist, with a Grammy nominated movie soundtrack. He is a road-tested, relentless touring performer who has an incredible magic trick of audience connection. McComb is an entertainer and a storyteller, with a live show that allows no false notes and makes sure nothing goes without being tied together for the purpose of a set-up and a payoff. Blending his knack for stories that bring crowds from full laughs to pin drop silence, Jeremy’s audience connection, is un-matched. While still true, organic, real, and raw. 

In addition to exceptional live music, the grandstand will be home to a variety of other family friendly events and fan favorites including the Ranch Rodeo with Mutton Bustin’ on August 8; Pig n’ Mud Wrestling on August 11; Octane Addictions Freestyle Motocross Show Featuring X-Games Legends on August 12; the PRCA Rodeo on August 14; and the Demolition Derby on August 15.

Today is an exciting day for the Wyoming State Fair as we announce that the 2020 State Fair will take place as planned, pending exception approval from health officials. The fair is scheduled to take place August 11-15 in Douglas with an extensive health and safety plan in place. We have long been a gathering point for generations of families, while providing a quality educational experience and entertainment for all who have attended. The Wyoming State Fair is a celebration of all things Wyoming and showcases our pride in our traditions, agriculture, innovation, industry, youth, entrepreneurs, artists, entertainment and so much more. This year will be no different. Although we have all faced unprecedented challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to move forward with this year’s Wyoming State Fair, celebrating our 108th year!
 
We are also excited to reveal all-new branding of the Wyoming State Fair! As Wyoming’s Premier Summer Event, we want to ensure our brand reflects such. Thus, earlier this year the Wyoming State Fair board initiated a process to refine and refresh our brand. Today we are excited to reveal our new brand initiative which was unanimously approved by the Board at their June meeting this past Tuesday. The brand refresh includes a new logo and color palette, new website, and updated marketing materials. Phase one of the website has been completed, with new information and updates being added as they become available. All phases of the new website will be finalized by this fall.
 
We worked closely with our marketing agency in creating a new look that represents what makes Wyoming State Fair special. The fair has always been an event that has showcased the culture and heritage of Wyoming and has been a constant thread weaving through the fabric of Wyoming’s history. It is not just about the entertainment value, it’s about celebrating Wyoming, honoring our agriculture roots and supporting innovation and youth development.
 
Playing off the former logo and Wyoming tradition, the new logo features the famous steamboat at the center and a sunburst backdrop. It was important that our new brand reflects the nostalgia and excitement of what a fair means to so many and connects with the generations of fair-goers and participants.
 
In the coming months, we encourage the public to stay connected with us and look for regular Fair updates on our website and social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. We have some exciting news that we will be sharing soon including an announcement later today revealing our live grandstand entertainment lineup! 
 
We’re very much looking forward to a successful and safe 2020 Wyoming State Fair! For questions or to request an interview, please reach out to courtny.conkle@wyo.gov or 307-358-2398. Thank you for your ongoing support of our mission and entrepreneurialism in Wyoming!
