Announcing the 2011 Concert Lineup

Dorton Arena has become the iconic symbol of the N.C. State Fair since it was first used for livestock shows during the 1952 fair. Described in its first year as “one of the most unusual buildings ever constructed by the mind of man,” Dorton continues to be a pretty special place and hosts nightly concerts during the Fair. Check out the video below to see who is performing at Dorton Arena during the 2011 State Fair.

You may have noticed we didn’t announce the concert for Saturday, Oct. 15. We’ll make that announcement in August, so stay tuned for details.

We can tell you concert tickets for all shows range from $5 to $15 per ticket, and they will be available starting Aug. 1 at 10 a.m. You also can purchase advance-sale admission and ride tickets at that time. For more information about tickets check out our website.

We want to hear from you. Who are you most looking forward to and why?

About Bearded Lady

Paul Jones blogged for the 2009-2012 N.C. State Fairs. Here's his bio from 2009: Paul Jones, here (a.k.a. Bearded Lady). I love the N.C. State Fair. I love the rides, I love the food, but my favorite part of the Fair is the displays of the unusual. The two-headed snake, the world’s smallest woman, the world’s tallest horse and the list goes on. Originally from South Carolina, I hope that I can bring a different perspective to this blog as I shed light on some of the ordinary, yet extraordinary, aspects of this year’s Fair.
