Foxworthy




At the Alaska State Fair 2019 Annual Membership meeting, held at Raven Hall on the fairgrounds last night, the Fair announced two more concerts that will be part of the 2019 AT&T Concert Series: Slightly Stoopid on Thursday, Aug. 29 and Jeff Foxworthy on Sunday, Sept. 1.

At the meeting, Fair members also voted to elect three members to the Fair Board of Directors. Out of a pool of nine candidates, incumbent Stephen Brown, Aryne Randall and John Harkey were elected to serve three-year terms on the board.

Tickets to the following newly announced concerts go on sale to the general public Friday, May 24 at 10 a.m.: 

Thursday, August 29: Slightly Stoopid. The Ocean Beach, California-based band, Slightly Stoopid, is known for their eclectic, genre-mashing sound and unique collaborations with other artists. Now in their second decade of making music, the group continues to create energizing, multifaceted music that has been described as “a spiritual bath of positive party energy.”

Sunday, September 1: Jeff Foxworthy. Jeff Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country. Widely known for his redneck jokes, his act goes well beyond that. He is the largest-selling comedy-recording artist in history with more than 13 million albums sold, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and best-selling author of 26 books. He’s hosted or starred in five TV series and was also a part of one of the most successful comedy tours of all time, The Blue Collar Comedy Tour.
