SHENANDOAH COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) — The Shenandoah County Fair has announced their headlining act for this year's 102nd Shenandoah County Fair in Woodstock.
“Casting Crowns," a contemporary Christian band known best for hit songs like “Until The Whole World Hears," "Who Am I," "Voice of Truth," and "Praise You In This Storm," is making their first-ever appearance in the Shenandoah Valley on Friday, August 30, at 7:30 p.m.
The band, which has sold more than 11 million albums and has stayed at the top of Billboard's Christian music list since 2007, got its start as a youth group worship band in Florida. The lead singer, Mark Hall, still serves as student pastor at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in Atlanta.
In addition, they've been part of a team of first responders distributing supplies following the 2010 Haiti earthquake and were picked as the only U.S. musical act to perform at an arts festival in North Korea in 2007 and 2009.
They just wrapped up their "The Very Next Thing" tour, which was the highest-grossing of their career.
Tickets will go on sale for their Shenandoah County performance on Friday, March 1, at 9 a.m.
Reserved seats include Premium Track seating at $50, Track Seating at $40, and Grandstand seats at $30.
That's separate from the cost of admission to the fair, but you can save $1 on gate admission by adding a fair ticket when you buy a concert ticket online.
Tickets will be available through the fair website via ETix. Be aware of third-party sellers that could be attempting to scam you.
The Shenandoah County Fair kicks off on Monday, August 26 and runs through Saturday, August 31.
On Saturday the 31st, the fair will host an encore performance of "Kix," who took the stage last year as well. They'll be accompanied by seventies/eighties rockers “Autograph”, best known for their legendary rock anthem hit “Turn Up the Radio.”
Those tickets go on sale on March 1 as well.
Adult tickets to the fair will be available through a 3-day pass for $15 online, or at the gate for $7 a day. A $6 single-day ticket will be available online until August 25.
