Who’s playing the 2011 Deschutes County Fair?

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

This just in from Deschutes County: Country singer Clay Walker and classic rockers The Guess Who, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and REO Speedwagon will play free concerts at the 2011 Deschutes County Fair.

Folks who procure a concert pass (at any number of locations around Central Oregon) and pay admission to the fair can catch the following shows:

• Aug. 3 — The Guess Who (“American Woman,” “These Eyes”)

• Aug. 4 — Clay Walker (“What’s It To You,” “Live Until I Die”)

• Aug. 5 — REO Speedwagon (“Keep On Loving You,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling”)

• Aug. 6 — Joan Jett & the Blackhearts (“I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” “Bad Reputation”)

The shows will begin at 7 p.m. each night, with doors to the fairgrounds’ event center opening at 5:30 p.m. Admission to the fair costs $10 for adults, $6 for seniors older than 62 and children age 6-12, and free for kids 5 and younger.

Concert passes for the series, which is sponsored by Big Country RV, will be available through several local radio stations and, starting in July, at area McDonald’s restaurants.
