So we didn't have a Benton-Franklin Fair and Rodeo last year due to the pandemic but good news for fairgoers for 2021, some dates have been etched out for this year's fair.

Fair organizers took to their Twitter account to announce tentative dates for this year's Benton-Franklin Fair and Rodeo. The tweet reads:

“Save the Date! While we can’t predict the future, we are doing our best to plan the 2021 Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo. If state guidelines allow the Fair to be held in 2021, we will be ready,”


The Benton-Franklin Fair and Rodeo will be a welcome return to normalcy for the Columbia Basin and I for one can't wait until we get back to watching the rodeo, chomping down on great fair food, and watching concerts.

In writing this article, it got me thinking about my favorite concerts I've seen at the fair so I've included a few below to let you reminisce and let me know what your favorite concerts have been at the fair in the comments below.

Night Ranger was at the fair about 10 years ago, loved these guys at the fair

Chaka Khan was a few years back and "Ain't Nobody" better.

Dustin Lynch was here in 2019 and I loved how the show started with the red lights blaring.

My wife LOVED Kenny Rogers and made me sit through the encore.

I'm a sucker for soft rock and Air Supply will still be one of my all-time favorite shows at the fair.

Bret Micheals crushed it the night he performed at the Benton-Franklin Fair and Rodeo.
