Trace Adkins concert postponed


PORTLAND, Ind. — Jay County Fair organizers have announced that the Trace Adkins concert, previously scheduled for July 8 during the fair, has been postponed because of the wet grounds.

The concert is rescheduled for Aug. 14.

The fair board was concerned that the saturated infield would not be able to handle the heavy tour buses, semi trailer and large stage required for the concert.

Tickets already purchased will be good for the Aug. 14 show, and tickets remain available for all areas — standing pit, track seats, box seats and grandstand.

In lieu of the Trace Adkins concert July 8, The Hunter Smith Band, featuring the Indianapolis Colts Superbowl punter Hunter Smith, will perform a free concert at the fair. The show will begin at 8 p.m.Grandstand admission will be free, and box seats will be available for $10.
