OHIO STATE FAIR OPENS WEDNESDAY


Ohio State Fair kicks off 157th edition Wednesday

BY JOHN BENSON • CentralOhio.com • July 26, 2010

It's Fairtastic!"

That's the theme for the 157th Ohio State Fair, which runs Wednesday through Aug. 8 at the fairgrounds in Columbus.
While an exact definition of "Fairtastic" might be up for debate, Ohio State Fair Entertainment Director Brett Chance believes the declaration deals with the various high-profile music and performance artists coming through central Ohio over the next week and a half.
The list of performers includes Selena Gomez ($25, July 29), George Duke & David Sanborn ($20, July 30), Weezer ($36, July 31), Jeff Dunham ($38, Aug. 1), Jeremy Camp ($12, Aug. 2), Darius Rucker ($28, Aug. 3), Devo ($30, Aug. 4), Heart ($30, Aug. 5), Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds ($20, Aug. 6) and Rascal Flatts ($35 to $75, Aug. 9).
Chance, who has been involved with the fair for the past two decades and has booked the entertainment for a dozen years, talked about the ins and outs of programming an annual event that attracts more than 800,000 people.
