The Farmers Bank Stage will present six different acts at the nine-day Clay County Fair, September 7-15.
“The Farmers Bank Stage is a popular spot for many of our fairgoers because of its high-quality entertainment acts,” said Fair Manager Jeremy Parsons. “The tent in southwest corner of the fairgrounds will be the place to be again this year.”
September 7-9: Thistle & Lace, Sean Emery
New to the Clay County Fair this year is Thistle & Lace (September 7-9), an acoustic trio that combines spot-on harmonies with different hits from the past 80 years. The group’s fun and friendly personalities along with audience interactions makes them perfect for any song lover and family.
Along with Thistle & Lace will be Sean Emery, a comedian and juggler with circus skills, showmanship, and funny remarks. Emery, who was a Barnum & Bailey and Ringling Bros. circus clown, will make his audiences laugh and ask, “How does he do that?”
September 10-12: Marv Nissel Band, Tuey
September 10-12, the Farmers Bank Stage will welcome the return of polka to the Fair with the Marv Nissel Band. Along with the polka band will be Tuey, a comic stunt juggler. Tuey goes above and beyond the usual displays of juggling skills as he includes a wide array of manipulations. He runs, throws cups, and wears flaming headgear.
September 13-15: Noah Sonie, Forever Elvis
Another new act to the Fair is Noah Sonie, a mentalist and magician will put on a great show for all attendees. Providing an engaging show with subtle humor, Sonie will create an unforgettable show that will leave audiences cheering from September 13-15.
Forever Elvis will also appear September 13-15, the last weekend of the Fair. A definite Fair favorite, this tribute band will have fairgoers remembering the moves and powerful sounds from the King of Rock ‘N’ Roll.
