Neo-traditional country singer and songwriter Chancey Williams will be opening. The Wyoming native was named iHeartRadio’s 2022 Rocky Mountain Country Music Awards Entertainer of the Year. Williams also won Songwriter of the Year for “The Saint”, and Album of the Year for “3rd Street”, produced with country hitmaker, Trent Wilmon. The performance will include songs from his most recent album, “One of These Days”.
Of course, there will be rodeos Thursday and Friday nights, with Friday being ‘Tough Enough to Wear Pink’ in which attendants will wear pink to show their support and raise funds for cancer awareness.
Wednesday, Aug. 2, 406 FMX will be wowing the crowd with their freestyle motocross show in the arena and tickets are just $15. It will be 90 minutes of adrenaline as the crowd watches motorcycle jumps, snowmobile jumps, and a back-flipping UTV.
“It really should be an awesome show,” said Fair Manager Pam Shelmidine of the Montana based 406 FMX entertainers. “It is always great to get local talent to showcase in our arena.”
Free entertainment will be held every day with a rotating schedule that will be posted on the Richland County Fair & Rodeo website and Facebook page in June.
Strolling acts include Pippi the Clown and Buster the Baby T-Rex. Buster and his handler will be roaming around the fairgrounds for an hour at a time, three times a day.
Additionally, there will be The Magic Bean, which is an agricultural education show for kids, explaining to them in fun fashion how a little bean seed becomes food on the table. There will also be a pedal tractor pull for the kids that will happen three times each day of the fair. These acts will be set up in the grassy area behind the fair office and there will be signs set up to make sure everyone knows where to go to take in these fun events.
Don’t forget to swing into the carnival and check out the more than 100 vendors that will be set up in and outside the event center. Get your grub on for a good cause and sample some delicious fair food while supporting a variety of nonprofits that raise a bulk of funds for their organizations feeding hungry fair-goers. Remember the reason for this particular season is to showcase some of Richland County’s finest via awesome fair exhibits. Baking, photography, sewing, seed pictures, school exhibits, 4-H exhibits and so much more will be proudly displayed. The 4-H schedule will be available on the fair website by the end of the week.
