Old 97's County Fair at Main Street Garden
Tiney Ricciardi Recommends
This event marries the festive atmosphere of a county fair with an excellent lineup of indie bands. Adults and kids alike can play carnival games and eat all sorts of comfort food, including turkey legs and fried Oreos. Couple that with a ride on the Ferris wheel there and you're guaranteed a good time. This year, I'm most looking forward to rocking out to indie-pop group Lord Huron, sunny Americana act Valerie June, gritty Southern rocker Paul Cauthen, and, of course, the namesake rock group Old 97's.
