To honor and thank the Valley’s essential workers, the Central Washington State Fair, in partnership with Fatbeam, will kick off the opening night of the Fatbeam Concert Series by giving away 500 pairs of tickets to Hollywood Swing, a Kool and the Gang Tribute, performance on Friday, September 24th.
This high energy band will bring all the hits of Kool & the Gang to the opening celebration. So get your boogie shoes on and get ready for a great night of Celebration.
“Our frontline workers represent the best of us and we hope this provides a welcome and well-deserved break for those who provided support when we needed it most," said Fatbeam CEO Paul Merritt. "On behalf of Fatbeam, we appreciate all you have given to the Yakima Valley and beyond through your dedication and service. We are proud to be a part of this special event, the Fair, and this community as we celebrate our local heroes."
The free concert tickets will be distributed through a lottery at fairfun.com. The lottery opens on August 17th and will run through September 6th. Lottery winners will be notified the week of September 13th with ticketing information.
All essential workers across the Valley are eligible to enter the lottery. To enter simply visit fairfun.com and provide your name, email address, and the essential job you performed during the pandemic. 500 names will be selected randomly from the lottery submissions. One entry per person and you must be 18 years and older to participate. For those not selected from the lottery to win concert tickets, special pricing offers for additional concerts will be provided.
“We’ve all been through a lot this past year and a half, and we wanted to thank all the front-line essential workers that provided their services during the pandemic. The essential workers were critical to bringing services and goods to our community in the darkest of times. Now that we can “Celebrate Together Again”, we wanted to do something to thank the essential workers in the Valley, and what a better way to do that than to have them join us for the opening night concert of the 2021 Fair. ” Said President and CEO, Kathy Kramer.
