As we all patiently await the announcement of the Adams County Fair headliner, the Illinois State Fair (just up the road in Springfield) has been announcing some big name shows of their own.

Old Dominion was just added to the list of performers for this year's Illinois State Fair and will be taking the stage on August 15. All tickets are on sale now and can be purchased on the Illinois State Fair Website. This year's fair will run August 8 - 18 in Springfield, Illinois.

I have to admit I have never been to a state fair. My girls went last year with my sister-in-law and loved it. I might have to check it out this year and see what's it all about.

Previously announced shows include Day + Shay (Sunday August 11), Pentatonix (Wednesday, August 14) and Snopp Dogg (Friday, August 16).
