One of the biggest parts of the State Fair of West Virginia is the grandstand concert series, which hosts concerts nightly Friday through Aug. 17 (except Tuesday, which is the free FMX Championship Motocross at 8 p.m.). This year's acts skew heavily country, but there are hard rock, contemporary Christian and teen pop shows, too.
When planning your trip, take into account that the ticket prices listed below do not include gate admission, which is an additional $10 for ages 13 and up and $8 for ages 6-12. Grandstand seating is raised, covered seating. Call 800-514-3849 or visit www.statefairofwv.com to purchase.
Here is the 2013 grandstand concert schedule:
Tate Stevens: 8 p.m. Free with gate admission. Country.
Casting Crowns: 8 p.m. Tickets $20 (limited single seats closer to the stage remain for $23 and $25). Contemporary Christian.
