Music starts at 3:00 pm with the Off The Grid Band in the Exhibition Hall. The 7 Dutchman Band follows with German and Czech tunes starting at 7:00 pm. The music continues over on the main stage, where fans can dance under the stars to Jake Hooker from 8:30 to 12:30 am.

The horse races will be held on both Saturday and Sunday, with a slate of 10 quarter horse and thoroughbred races scheduled for each day. Gates open at 11:00 am, with post time at 1:00 pm.
