Washingtoon Co Fair Taps Moonstruck Management As Talent Buyer
The Washington County Fair, located in Abingdon, Virginia, is very proud to announce that Moonstruck Management has been tapped as the music talent buyer for their 2018 fair.
The Washington County Fair began 68 years ago when local businessmen and farmers created an event to celebrate agriculture’s importance in their community. The fair has continued to grow and now features music concerts, livestock shows, horse shows, carnival rides, commercial and educational exhibits, arts, crafts, petting zoo and much more. Last year’s entertainment included Michael Tyler, Jo Dee Messina, Joe Diffie, Dylan Scott, Georgia Satellites and more. For six days in September, the Washington County Fairgrounds serve as the home for the Washington County Fair. For more information, please visit www.washcofair.com.
Jennifer Blankenship from the Washington County Fair said, “All of us on the entertainment committee are excited about working with Josh and his team at Moonstruck Management. Anytime an organization makes a change it opens the doors for fresh new opportunities and we feel this partnership is an excellent fit for our fair. In October we reached out to our fans on Facebook and asked who they would like to have as entertainment at the 2018 Fair. We had over 250 comments. Some are financially and logistically impossible for a small county fair to offer, however, others were right on track. As a team, we will be listening to our fans, researching other events in our area and keeping a close eye on the charts to bring you the best entertainment lineup yet. We all are looking forward to the 2018 Washington County Fair.”
“I was excited when Jennifer Blankenship called me to see if I would be interested in meeting with the fair entertainment committee. Abingdon and Washington County are basically home for me as Southwest Virginia and my home in East Tennessee are in the same region. I share an equal passion for the people in our area that are my friends and family. It is going to be really exciting to incorporate my love for music and create something special with the team at the 2018 Washington Co. Fair."
Moonstruck Management is not only a successful music artist management company with an impressive roster, but also a talent buyer for events such as the Huck Finn Jubilee in California, Uncle Dave Macon Days in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and as just announced the Rockingham County Fair in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
