To be honest, we'd never heard of the Great Jones County Fair in Iowa until a response on our listener survey brought it up, and as it turns out, it's pretty great.
The fair is held in Monticello, Iowa, which is basically 200 miles north of Quincy. For anyone who loves live country music and everything fairs have to offer, it may well be worth a long weekend or some vacation time though.
Miranda Lambert is the headliner on Thursday, July 17, with Tyler Farr opening for her. Tickets are $50 for track seating and $40 for the bleachers.
The following night, Friday, July 18 it's Luke Bryan along with Lee Brice. Track seats for that show cost $75 and bleacher seats are $65.
Kid Rock takes the stage on Saturday, July 19 and gospel singer Chris Tomlin on Sunday, July 20.Tickets for all the shows are available online.
A free stage will also be featured and on site camping is available too.
