Pima County Fair concerts set; Rock, pop, hip-hop and the fair's first-ever EDM show

We love the giant corndogs and smoked turkey legs chased by a slew of stomach-churning, gravity-defying carnival rides at the Pima County Fair, but the real reason we love the fair: the concerts.

And we’re really excited about this year’s lineup, a mix of ’80s metal rock, 2000s pop country, some 1970s disco/dance, ’90s hair bands, a hip-hop star with a Christian message and the fair’s first-ever EDM show.

And we love the price tag: Free with fair admission.

So here’s the rundown on the 2020 Pima County Fair.

When: April 16-26

Where: Pima County Fairgrounds, 11300 S. Houghton Road

Admission: $9 adults, $5 kids ages 6 to 10 through or at the gate. $2 for everyone April 20.

Parking: $5
