CLEARFIELD – Country sensation Sugarland is scheduled to perform Aug. 1 (Wednesday) at 8 p.m. on the grandstand stage at the Clearfield County Fair.
In the two years since the Top Five single “Baby Girl” put Sugarland on the map, they’ve accomplished more than anyone ever expected, least of all Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush themselves, according to the Clearfield Volunteer Fire Department Fair and Park Board.
With almost 3 million copies sold of their Mercury Nashville debut, “Twice the Speed of Life,” an American Music Award for Favorite Breakthrough Artist, an Academy of Country Music Award for New Duo/Group of the Year, a Grammy nod for Best New Artist, and six CMA nods, the little band that could did, in a big way. Audiences connect with Sugarland’s honest-to-goodness approach to life, love, and everything in between, a trademark not only of their songs, but of their entire existence. Sale of concert tickets will be announced at a later date.
Advance Gate Season Passes for the fair will go on sale in late May or early June. The Advance Gate pass is a booklet consisting of five tear-out coupons. The coupon itself is perforated — one half is to be used at the gate for admission and the other half can be used at the carnival midway to purchase an all day ride band for $5.
The Advance Gate Pass will be sold for $15 and will be available until the Sunday of the fair. The Advance Gate Pass provides an alternative to purchase gate admission at the former rate for fairgoers who do wish to ride. General admission for fair week (July 30 – Aug. 4) is $6, which includes the midway rides.
Event tickets for Thrills in the Hills are now available online and at the following locations: Champions Choice-Curwensville; DuBois Harley Davidson –DuBois; Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub, Busters Sports Bar, Clearfield Chamber of Commerce, and the fair office – Clearfield.
Visa and Master Card will be accepted for online ticket orders. Tickets are $11 in advance and $15 at the gate for the entire event.
