Iowa State Fair announcing grandstand acts, including Reba McEntire

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- It may be cold and snowy outside right now, but before you know it, the 2011 Iowa State Fair will be upon us.  And, so far, there are a couple of pretty popular artists lined-up to play the grandstand and heat things up.

On Thursday, August 11, Casting Crowns, a Grammy Award winning contemporary Christian/Christian rock band will perform with special guest Sanctus Real. 

On Sunday, August 14, country band Sugarland will take the stage.  A special guest is yet to be announced for that show.

Then, on Saturday, August 20, Reba McEntire will take to the grandstand with special guest Jerrod Niemann.

There are still six more acts to be announced and tickets for grandstand shows will not be available until late April or early May.

The 2011 Iowa State Fair runs from August 11-21.
