Nebraska State Fair Presents

Chris Young in Concert


Accomplishing more than many artists do in a lifetime, Chris Young brings his live dynamic performance to the Nebraska State Fair on Friday, August 22.


Events and entertainment director, Chelsey Jungck says, “Chris has already received a Grammy nomination, has had five number one songs of which he wrote four and offers a performance that is constantly in demand.”  “Young’s a classic baritone with a sound that is definitely country,” Jungck said.


Chris Young will perform at 7:30pm on Friday, August 22nd at the Heartland Events Center.  Reserved seat tickets can be obtained by going to or the Heartland Events Center Box Office in Grand Island for a $6 dollar convenience fee.  Tickets are available beginning on August 4.


Jungck says, “Young’s hits include “Who I Am With You”, “Voices”, “You”, “Tomorrow”, and many others.  It’s this kind of top tier entertainment that makes the Nebraska State Fair’s Entertainment Series one to be reckoned with.”


With reserved seating through, The State Fair has eliminated wristbands in favor of allowing all fair fans to book their tickets online or at the Heartland Events Center box office for a very low convenience fee. 


“We listen very closely to our fair guests, and this is definitely a step in the right direction so that folks from throughout the state can get premium reserved seat tickets without having to stand in line.” Jungck said, adding, “We’re sure closer to the stage is better when watching Chris Young ‘bring it’ to the Heartland Events Center Stage.”
