The Jackson County Fair opens Sunday, August 9th with featured acts The Beach Boys, Shinedown and Gabriel Iglesias among the grandstand shows during the week. Jackson County Fair Manager Denise Owens is grateful for the support of sponsors, including AT&T, the silver sponsor. Andy Solon, External Affairs Manager for AT&T, announced on today’s Bart Hawley Show a three year partnership. Working with Monica Moser, CEO of the Jackson Community Foundation, AT&T will again sponsor the Fair, continuing the company’s support of youth, education, agriculture, veterans and the Fair in general. The Jackson County Fair has enjoyed AT&T’s sponsorship for several years and is just one of many organizations and initiatives AT&T supports in the community. Solon said later this month the company is sponsoring The Amazing Race Jackson and this week he met with the United Way to pledge commitment for the upcoming campaign.
Tickets for all shows are still available at etix.com, jacksoncountyfair.net and by calling 517-788-4405. There are several promotions and special days, including Senior Citizens Day on Monday and Veterans Day on Thursday, underwritten by AT&T.
