Celebrating 82 Years of Magic and Fun!
Pensacola Interstate Fair, Oct. 20-30, 2016

Pensacola, Fla. – (Aug. 22, 2016) – Pensacola’s biggest and longest-running annual agricultural and entertainment tradition returns Thursday, Oct. 20, through Sunday, Oct. 30, bringing with it the excitement of attractions and screams from exhilarating rides, exhibits, fair food, fun and shows for the whole family. The 82nd Pensacola Interstate Fair has many exciting surprises in store, including a star-studded line-up of live music acts and a special guest appearance by a classic and hairy cartoon character.

“The music artists and live entertainment we have lined up this year are terrific,” said Don Frenkel, Pensacola Interstate Fair General Manager. “We are thrilled to bring such a variety of acts to Pensacola.”

The Fair’s musical line-up kicks off opening night with the Cat Country 98.7 BIG Lip Sync Battle Finals,” a final epic showdown on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m. This year, the weekly Lip Sync Battle takes place at the Sandshaker Lounge on Pensacola Beach every Thursday evening starting Sept. 22 and running through Oct. 20, when the final battle will take place.  Contestants can compete individually or as a group of up to 10 people for the chance to win a cash prize at the finals on October 20. Each week, three winning acts are chosen, and the 12 acts from all four weeks battle it out on stage during the finals for the chance to be the Lip Sync champion.

Classic soft rock band, Little River Band, will perform their hit songs from the ‘70s and ‘80s on Friday, Oct. 21, at 7:30 p.m.  Considered to be among Australia’s most significant bands, they are best known for the classic hits, “Reminiscing,” “Lonesome Loser,” “The Night Owls,” and “Help is on its Way.” The band’s worldwide album and CD sales have topped 30 million. They also set a record for having Top 10 hits for six consecutive years, the first band to achieve that mark.

‘80s GlamRock fans will have an opportunity to rock out on Saturday, Oct. 22, at 7:00 p.m., as the Fair presents musician and heartthrob Bret Michaels. Michaels first gained fame in the ‘80s as the lead vocalist of the glam metal band, Poison, selling over 45 million records worldwide. Besides his career as lead singer, Michaels has several solo albums to his credit and appeared in the hit VH1 reality show “Rock of Love with Bret Michaels” and its sequels, which inspired his successful solo album “Rock My World.” He was also the winning contestant on NBC’s reality show “Celebrity Apprentice 3.”

New this year, the fair will present the inaugural “Miss Pensacola Interstate Fair” Beauty Pageant on Sunday, Oct. 23, starting at noon on the Pepsi Open Air Stage. Pageant contestants will compete in one of seven age categories, ranging from infant to 18 years old. A queen and two alternates will be chosen from each age group. In addition, a People’s Choice title will be awarded to contestants collecting the most votes for $1 each. Deadline to enter is October 2. The entry fee is $55 per contestant until September 10, and then $60 through October 2. All proceeds benefit the Livestock Barn. Entry forms and rules can be found at Sunday also marks Military Appreciation Day, and admission price for all active and retired military and spouses is just $6 all day long.

Bring the kids out Monday, Oct. 24, on Cox Media Day, to meet everyone’s favorite talking Great Dane, Scooby-Doo. The silly, yet loveable, gentle giant will make two live Meet & Greet appearances on the Pepsi Open Air Stage from 4:30-6:00 p.m. and again from 7:00-8:30 p.m. The first 200 fans in line for each appearance will receive a free downloadable photo with Scooby.  Lines will close 30 minutes before the end of each show, so get there early!

“Come Sail Away” to the Pensacola Interstate Fair and “Faithfully” welcome local band White Tie Rock Ensemble with “Open Arms” on Tuesday, Oct. 25, at 6:30 p.m. as they present a tribute to Styx and Journey. The local group of musicians recreates classic rock albums with the precision and detail of a symphony. These dynamic elements combine to produce the unforgettable White Tie sound. So whether you’re a “Renegade” or “Mr. Roboto,” White Tie promises to deliver the tunes “Any Way You Want It,” as long as you “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

On Wednesday, Oct. 26, the public is invited to attend and participate in the Youth and FFA Livestock Auction at 7 p.m. from the Livestock Arena. At 8 p.m., San Antonio-forged Tex-Mex/Country trio, The Last Bandoleros, will take the Pepsi Open Air Stage to get the crowds moving with their infectious hooks. The Last Bandoleros mesh one part Tex-Mex, one part Brit-Pop and two parts Country-Rock — adding up to a sound that’s hard to pin down and hard to get out of your head. Warner Music Nashville will release the band’s debut album later this year. Their first single out now, “Where Do You Go?” has a roadhouse rhythm with a killer accordion solo.

As part of our special Senior Appreciation Day, come on out and take part in an afternoon and evening of nostalgia on Thursday, Oct. 27, at 3:30 and 7 p.m. as Neil Diamond’s Favorite Tribute – Jay White takes the stage to pay homage to Neil’s 50th Anniversary. For more than three decades White has been performing as Neil Diamond in countless casinos, theaters and 4-star hotels in Las Vegas and nationwide. In a January 2002 interview, Diamond was asked about all of the Neil tribute performers, and replied “I’ve heard a few of them and I’m always complimented by their efforts and dedication, but my favorite is a young man named Jay White.”

Midnight Madness begins Friday, Oct. 28 and Smash Mouth, a California rock band with surf and garage influences, will get the party started at 7:30 p.m.  Known for such ‘90s and 2000s chart-topping hits as “Walkin’ on the Sun,” All Star,” and cover song, “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” the band’s retro-pop style covers several decades of popular music. The group also contributed numerous tracks to a plethora of motion pictures, most notably their cover of the Monkees’ “I’m a Believer” to the soundtrack of 2001′s hit movie “Shrek.”

A 6-foot-5-inch country singer and songwriter with fiery red hair will help wrap up the 2016 Fair entertainment acts this year. Eric Paslay will take the stage on Sunday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. to close out the show. Paslay has celebrated five No. 1 hits including “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” (Eli Young Band), “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” (Jake Owen), “Angel Eyes” (Love & Theft), “Rewind” (Rascal Flatts) and “Friday Night,” the smash lead single from his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. An ACM “Song of The Year” nominee for “She Don’t Love You,” Paslay recently released his back beat-driven groove “High Class,” the lead single from his highly-anticipated sophomore album.

In addition to the daily music acts, fairgoers can experience an interactive, hands-on exotic animal zoo at the Eudora Farms station. The petting zoo is open daily from fair open to close. In addition, new this year, fairgoers have an opportunity to see rare, white tigers perform daily too. Page’s White Tiger Show, presented by Vincenta Pages — one of the youngest female tiger trainers in the world, will thrill and amaze you. With six white Bengal tigers, Vincenta will take you through her upbringing in the circus world, her family background and her unique raising of white Bengals. Check the website for daily show times.
