Officials with this year’s Scioto County Fair have announced an all-star lineup of entertainment that will be taking the stage this year.
Admission to the 117th Scioto County Fair that’s set to take place from Aug. 5-10 is $8 daily for two and older. Armed Services Members are admitted for free if in uniform. Gates Open 10 a.m. Monday and 8 a.m. Tuesday - Saturday.

Tuesday, Aug. 6 will feature the group, “The Lost Trailers” as the evening entertainment at 8 p.m.
According to thelosttrailers.com, “the Lost Trailers is a country music duo of songwriter/producer Stokes Nielson and collaborator Jason Wyatt. Nielson’s first record using the name The Lost Trailers was an album entitled, “The Story of the New Age Cowboy,” which was discovered by Willie Nelson in the spring of 2000. Nelson was so impressed with the album that he invited The Lost Trailers to perform at his legendary 4th of July Picnic. Using that show and others with Nelson as a launching pad, The Lost Trailers rose from a hard touring regional act to snagging three ACM Nominations and several Top 20 hits on country radio while opening for Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Jamey Johnson and many others.”
Wednesday, Aug. 7 will feature Lauren Alaina, who will take the stage at 8 p.m.
According to, www.laurenalainaofficial.com, “Lauren Alaina’s debut album, Wildflower, is a vibrant bouquet of compelling stories, powerful emotions and soaring vocals.
Lauren captured America’s heart when she appeared on American Idol earlier this year and revealed her enthusiasm, humor and warmth, as well as a commanding voice with an impressive range that has been compared to the genre’s premier vocalists, including Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride. She helped make the show one of the most popular yet. A record-breaking 122.4 million votes were cast for the finale, which garnered 29.3 million viewers, as well as 38.6 million who tuned in to see the winner’s name announced. She signed her record deal shortly thereafter and began recording her debut album with producer Byron Gallimore.”
Thursday, Aug. 8 will feature the annual Circus Continental will be at the Scioto County Fair with two performances once at 2 p.m. and again at 8 p.m.
Friday, Aug. 9 will feature John Michael Montgomery who will take the stage at 8 p.m.
According to www.johnmichael.com, “John Michael Montgomery has turned an uncanny ability to relate to fans into one of country music’s most storied careers. Behind the string of hit records, the roomful of awards and the critical and fan accolades that have defined his phenomenal success lies a connection that goes beyond his undeniable talent and his proven knack for picking hits. Since the days when “Life’s A Dance” turned him from an unknown artist into a national star, John Michael’s rich baritone has carried that most important of assets—believability. Few artists in any genre sing with more heart than this handsome Kentucky-born artist.
It is readily apparent in love songs that have helped set the standard for a generation. Songs like ‘I Swear,’ ‘I Love the Way You Love Me’ and ‘I Can Love You Like That.’”
Saturday, Aug. 10 wraps up the festivities by featuring the annual Demolition Derby.
