Traditional, new entertainment to be featured on Farmers Bank Stage
August 4, 2022
Spencer, Iowa — The Farmers Bank Stage will feature six different acts at the 2022 Clay County Fair powered by SMU September 10-18, just a portion of the $180,000 in free entertainment that will be offered to fairgoers every day at the Fair.
“From comedy to dueling pianos to magic, the Farmers Bank Stage will have something for everyone,” said Fair Manager Jeremy Parsons. “The tent in the southwest corner of the fairgrounds will again be a popular spot to see great free entertainment.”
To kick off the Fair is Jerry Frasier (Sept. 10-12). Frasier is a comic magician who delights and engages audiences of all ages. He’s performed in front of thousands of audiences all over America and is a returning Fair favorite.
Along with Jerry Frasier will be The String Showdown (Sept. 10-12). New to the Fair, The String Showdown is an interactive dueling music show. More interactive than a band, more exciting than a DJ, and more unique than dueling pianos, get ready for a fun & fast-paced performance full of sweet licks and hilarious riffs.
On September 13-15, the Fair will welcome David Malmberg, a comedian and ventriloquist, who gives you all of the laughs of a stand-up comedian with the added bonus of some merry sidekicks. Enjoy the wisecracking antics of the lovable Simon Spencer, America’s grouchiest farmer Leonard Cribble, and the totally clueless Lars Gunderson.
Joining Malmberg will be The Looney Lutherans (Sept. 13-15), a comedy trio who will share their hilarious Lutheran humor with fairgoers. The Looney Lutherans share tips from their (fictional) cookbook and lifestyle guide “Use Your Food. A guide to healthy living inside and out. From our kitchen to yours. Eat Like a Lutheran!”
To end the Fair, the Fair will welcome Duelly Noted (Sept. 16-18). Another new act, Duelly Noted is a one-of-a-kind act with both sass and class. They play all your favorite hits from the 60’s to today in a dueling piano format.
Becky Schlegel, a popular Fair favorite, will also return Sept. 16-18. Schlegel’s music is original, drawing on the influence of classic country, bluegrass, folk, and her own thoughtful spirit.
Each performer will entertain three times per day during their time at the Fair. Visit www.claycountyfair.com later in August when the Fair’s daily guides are released for official show times.
