80th Annual Pensacola Interstate Fair Line Up

Posted on: August 20th, 2014 by brent

It’s Magical!  It’s Fun!  It’s the Fair!  The 80th Pensacola Interstate Fair promises all the fun and excitement that it’s become known for over the years, along with big name music acts and television personalities.

The Fair’s musical line-up kicks off opening night with the “Catty-oke” finals presented by Cat Country 98.7 and Seville Quarter at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 16.

Rocker Eddie Money will perform his 70’s and 80’s hits on Friday, Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m.  With over a dozen albums of his own, he is best known for songs such as “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise” and Top 10 hit “Take Me Home Tonight.”

On Saturday, Oct. 18 at 7:00 p.m., the Fair presents country star David Nail.  Debuting in 2009, Nail became a household name in country music with songs like “Red Light” from his album I’m About to Come Alive and “Let It Rain” from his 2011 critically acclaimed album The Sound of a Million Dreams.  His newest album, I’m a Fire, includes the chart topping song “Whatever She’s Got.”  Nail was recently a 2014 CMT Music Awards nominee for Breakthrough Artist of the Year.

Local bands will have a chance to show their talent during our Sunday Showcase on Oct. 19. Be sure to come and support your favorite Pensacola act as shows are held throughout the day beginning at noon. Check the Fair website for details.

On Monday, Oct. 20Nick Jr. characters Milli and Geo from children’s show Team Umizoomi 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 the characters.  Lines will close 30 minutes before the end of each show, so get there early!

On Tuesday, Oct. 21 and Wednesday, Oct. 22, come out and see Jimmy Riffle, star of Animal Planet’s Gator Boys, perform stunts and capture techniques during the “Scales, Tails and Teeth Gator Show.”  There will be two shows both days at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. followed by meet and greet sessions after each.

Also on Tuesday, Oct. 21, local country sensation Chloe Channell takes the stage at 6:30 p.m.  Chloe began her singing career at age seven on the Farmers Opry stage.  She has since earned national attention by performing at Radio City Music Hall during the quarterfinals of America’s Got Talent.

YouTube and A&E star Big Smo will bring his blend of country, rap and hip-hop to the Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 8:00 p.m.  His newly debuted album, Kuntry Livin’, gives a look inside the mind of a true original with songs such as “Kickin It In Tennessee” and blue collar anthem “Workin’.”

Also on Wednesday, Oct. 22, everyone is invited to watch or participate in the Livestock Auction at 7:00 p.m.  This event includes prize-winning steer raised by students, and all proceeds from the auction go back to those students.

American chart topper Craig Morgan will kick off the country-filled final weekend of the Fair on Friday, Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m.  Since his first top ten hit “Almost Home,” Morgan has continued to heat up the airwaves with other hits like “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” and “International Harvester” and “Wake Up Lovin’ You.”
