Along with plenty of free entertainment, the Fulton County Fair is excited to announce the 2023 grandstand concerts.
Grandstand entertainment for the 2023 Fulton County Fair will feature Bret Michaels with special guest Steve Augeri on Sunday, September 3rd.

The band has also charted ten singles to the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, including six Top 10 singles and a number-one single, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”
Steve Augeri, formerly the lead singer for Journey, will kick off the show. Known for his soaring vocals, gritty tenor, and powerful stage presence, Steve Augeri brings his signature blend of rock and soul to the stage, singing the songs that made Journey famous.
Then dust off your cowboy hat and get ready for a night immersed in the country classics on Monday, September 4th, when country music legend Josh Turner takes the stage with special guest Emily Ann Roberts.
With his deep bass voice, Turner has sold more than six and a half million records, reached 4.8 billion global streams, and has become a favorite and unforgettable hitmaker on country radio.
With timeless songs like “Long Black Train” and “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” Turner’s five No. 1 singles include “Your Man,” of which the official music video surpassed 100 million views.
A native of South Carolina, Turner has been nominated for three GMA Dove Awards and won his first GMA Dove Award in 2021 for “I Saw The Light.”
