LIMA — The Allen County Fair brings great entertainment to fair goers every year, and this year, we are all in for a treat. On Aug. 26, Nelly and Sean Kingston will be performing and Aug. 27 brings country stars Rascal Flatts and Kelsea Ballerini.

“We have always had a traditional country act and through working with Live4 Entertainment and Dennis Richardson, it just made sense. We have two different genres of music and two different fan appeals.” said Bob Fricke, Allen County fair manager. “We are hoping people come out to the fair and to keep growing fair fans. This is just another reason to come to the Allen County Fair. Tickets are still available. We have great seats available for both concerts.”

The selection of the rap and pop artists was done after thoughtful consideration.

“We specifically chose Sean Kingston and Nelly because of their mass appeal. They are both pop artists who we felt would work good with the demographic in Lima and the surrounding area. This is a family-friendly event. We are expecting a great show, we are excited about it,” said Dennis Richardson, co-owner of Live4 Entertainment.

Following Nelly and Sean Kingston’s performance at the Allen County Fair, there will be an after-party at the Ohio Theatre in downtown Lima from midnight to 2 a.m., featuring Nelly and Lima resident Keyarrah Ferentay. Tickets are limited to 75, and people must be 21 and over to attend.

“We will also have a couple of special guests coming to the after party that will be released on our Live4 Entertainment Facebook page,” said Richardson.

For tickets to the Allen County Fair concerts, visit the fair website at allencofair.com or call the fair board office at 419-228-7141. Nelly box office tickets are cash only.
