The schedule will include everything from new features like the Welde’s Big Bear Expedition and Knights of Valour, a full metal jousting troupe, to returning crowd favorites, such as the Amazing Anastasini Circus, sponsored by U.S. Cellular, racing pigs, sponsored by Bluegreen Corporation and petting zoo, sponsored by Sam’s Club.

“The Missouri State Fair will offer an incredible schedule of free entertainment,” Fair Director Mark Wolfe said. “The free shows this year will entertain fairgoers of all ages, making the State Fair an especially economical choice as a summer family destination.”

The new Welde’s Big Bear Expedition features a family of bears, which serves as wildlife ambassadors, located west of the Agriculture Building Aug. 8-18. The bears have notable lineage, with their bear relatives performing with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in the 1940s.

Knights of Valour, as seen on the History Channel, are North America’s premier full-contact joust troupe. The troupe will alternate between performing weapons demonstrations and jousting in shows at the State Fair Arena. This one-day-only experience will include exciting horsemanship, bravery and chivalry from noon to 5:15 p.m. Aug. 11.

The State Fair will also provide four stages packed with 11 days of free, professional entertainment. Acts on the Kids Stage, sponsored by Subway, will include the Thank a Farmer Magic Show Aug. 8-18, Babaloo Music and Fun Aug. 8-12 and Spoon Man Aug. 13-18. The Thank a Farmer Magic Show will engage children in learning about agriculture, while Babaloo will provide over-the-top singing, dancing and shouting fun. The Spoon Man act will be a real stirring experience of comedy and laughter.

Music, comedy and variety acts are scheduled on three other free entertainment venues, which include Touchstone Energy Stage, Budweiser Stage and Ditzfeld Transfer Stage. Strolling entertainers, acts that meander the fairgrounds entertaining fairgoers, will include The Sweeney Family Band Country Comedy Review, sponsored by McDonalds, and Those Funny Little People, sponsored by Sonic.

Those Funny Little People have been featured on the television hit, America’s Got Talent. Their mix of humor, music and dance will entertain fairgoers of all ages Aug. 8-18.

The 111th Missouri State Fair, themed “Chicks Dig It!,” will be held Aug. 8-18 in Sedalia. For more information about the Missouri State Fair and the entertainment line-up, visit www.mostatefair.com, follow the Fair on Facebook and Twitter, or call 1-800-422-FAIR (3247).
