Get ready to rock with Bangor’s most popular band & a ton of fun events at the Bangor State Fair!

Won't be long now, before the Bangor State Fair comes roaring back to town, albeit with an abbreviated schedule this year, from Thursday, August 3rd, through Sunday, August 6th, at Bass Park. That means 4 days of rides, food, games, summer fun, and of course, live music.

Dakota is easily the most popular band in the Greater Bangor area, in fact, whenever they play weekends at Penobscot Pour House, the house is always packed to a standing room only crowd, so it makes perfect sense to have them perform in front of an even bigger audience.

Friday, August 4th, from 5pm-6:30pm, they crank up the tunes under the entertainment tent for beer, food and most importantly…DAKOTA!

This show is included in the fair admission.

Carnival rides, musical performances, demolition derbies, fabulous fair food, games, and more, make the Bangor State Fair, a can't-miss experience.
