2023 SCFF grandstand concerts

For the 2023 Steele County Free Fair, fair officials are transforming the grandstand concerts into top notch events and experiences. New to the stage this year will include country music duo LOCASH (Aug. 16), with special guest Drake Milligan. Returning after being rained out in 2021 is country music icon Craig Morgan (Aug. 18), with special guest Ashley Barron. Hairball will also return to the SCFF for the band’s usual Thursday night slot.

After a last minute cancelation in 2021 of one of the biggest names set to grace the Steele County Free Fair grandstand, fair officials were bound and determined to make sure the 2022 headliner show went off without a hitch.
