WAUSEON (Ohio) – One of the reasons the Fulton County Fair is one of Ohio’s most-attended fairs is the big-name entertainment the fair board is committed to bringing in each year. The 2013 fair is no exception, with the featured Sunday night’s grandstand performer being the 1980s rock sensation, Foreigner and Labor Day’s country concert featuring Justin Moore and Randy Houser.

With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, the 1980s rock band, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems including the worldwide #1 hit, I Want To Know What Love Is, Juke Box Hero, Feels Like The First Time, Urgent, Head Games, Say You Will, Cold as Ice, Hot Blooded, Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game, and the band is stronger and more powerful than ever.
Headlining this year’s Labor Day Concert is country music’s Justin Moore. With Randy Houser as opening act, Justin Moore will take the Fulton County Fair Grandstand stage on Monday, September 2.
