California Mid-State Fair 2011
July 20th - July 31st, 2011

Summer on the Central Coast is almost synonymous with going to the California Mid State Fair. Every year I look forward to hearing which artists will be performing on the Main Grandstand at the Fair which is held in Paso Robles at the Paso Robles Fair Grounds.This year it is from July 20- 31, 2011. I was looking on the Mid State Fair website the other day and I got really excited about who is going to be there this year. Some of the concerts tickets go on sale on March 4th so start planning your trip now so that you can be sure to not miss your favorite band!! The Steve Miller Band performs on July 20th with tickets for $25 - $70, with songs like "Rockin' Me," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Livin' in the USA" and "Abracadabra" this show is going to be amazing! Then, on Friday, July 22 one of my favorite bands Sugarland will be performing with Sara Bareilles as a special guest!! This group exploded onto the scene in 2005 and has not stopped making hits since then. This concert is sure to be exciting and entertaining. On Saturday, July 23rd Train and Maroon 5 are performing together!! I am so excited for this one because I have seen Maroon 5 in concert before and they are even better in concert then they are on the radio! Their music comes alive when it is performed live. Train is also one of the biggest names in music right now and I love all of their catchy songs!! On Tuesday, July 26th Jason Aldean performs!! He has spent more weeks at No. one on the radio charts than any other country artist in the last 12 months, and he is sure to give an amazing show at the Fair. Kid Rock will be performing at the Fair on Wednesday, July 27th. He has had a long career, first as a rock artist and then he crossed over into the country scene and has greatly succeeded in both genres. One of my favorite Kid Rock songs is "All Summer Long" it always gets me in the mood for summer! On Thursday, July 28th Lady Antebellum will be performing!! This band is another great country act that I absolutely love. I love all of their songs and I can only imagine how much better they will be live in concert! The last act that will be performing on the Main Grandstand stage on Friday, July 29th is Chicago. Chicago is joining forces once again with the American Cancer Society to create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays. Fans in every city where the band is performing will be able to bid on a package that includes two premium tickets, backstage passes, and the opportunity to sing the worldwide, #1 hit song "If You Leave Me Now" onstage with the band during the concert. All of these concerts look like they are going to be amazing so choose your favorite band, get ready to buy the tickets starting March 4th, and start planning your summer vacation in San Luis Obispo County right now!
