Last year should have been the 100th Vanderburgh County Fair. Last year should have featured Granger Smith on stage for the Fair's annual concert. But last year was last year and as we all know, neither of those things happened.

However, this year is a new year, and thanks to more and more people making the decision to get the COVID-19 vaccine, and research showing its effectiveness in reducing the spread of the virus, the Fair, and Granger, are back.

This year's Vanderburgh County Fair will take place July 26th through 31st, 2021, less than two weeks from when this article is being written. No doubt everyone is excited to get back to the Fair Grounds for this years event, and that includes Granger himself who passed along this quick video message through the Vanderburgh County Fair's Facebook page:

As Granger noted, his show is scheduled to begin at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, July 28th. Grandstand seating is included in the admission price to the Fair. Floor seating is available through the purchase of a $10 wristband which will be sold beginning at 5:30 PM the day of the show only.

In addition to Granger's performance, the 100th edition of the Vanderburgh County Fair will feature all the things we've loved since the first edition including livestock shows, professional and amateur tractor pulls, other live entertainment, and more.

Tickets for the Fair will be available at the gates of the Fairgrounds, and can be purchased in advance at all area Schnucks locations, the 4-H Center office, and the 4-H Extension Office in Darmstadt.

Keep listening to WKDQ between now and the Fair for your chance to win passes for free!

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest.
