“While finalizing entertainment for the fair, we decided to really go big on opening day by adding another free concert,” said South Carolina State Fair General Manager, Gary Goodman. “October was a tough month for our state last year and we know there’s still so much work to be done to continue the recovery process after the floods. We want to do our part by providing accessible, family-friendly entertainment for all.”
