Fairs & Festivals Tips
Using music to reinforce the theme of your Fair or Festival will distinguish it from other events and will encourage attendees to return each year if you have selected quality entertainers.

Go to North Carolina Association of Festivals & Events (NCAF&E) for a list of all events planned in the state to avoid date conflicts with other popular events..

Fairs & Festivals

People are drawn to fairs and festivals for various reasons:  the food, the games, the rides, the shows, the agricultural displays, the crafts, the music.  Fairs often are sponsored by states, counties, municipalities or local groups for the purpose of bringing a community together or raising capital for a worthwhile cause.  Often sponsored by the same entities, festivals often attract people interested in a particular theme, e.g., agriculture, art, beer, craft, food, music and wine.

Both fairs and festivals measure their success by attendance and revenues.  Many festivals and fairs have learned to use music and entertainment effectively to attract both frequent and infrequent fairgoers.  Choosing musical talent that appeals to individuals with diverse backgrounds is a daunting task for fair and festival planners.  The more varied the entertainment line up, the more likely the event will be a success. 

The music must be stimulating, entertaining and of the highest quality.  SeaSoundStudio Entertainment has many different artists who satisfy these requirements.  The specific artists who can best serve the unique needs of your fair or festival depend upon the purpose of your event and the entertainment theme that will best reinforce that purpose.  For more information on the ideas suggested below or if you need specific assistance, contact SeaSoundStudio Entertainment.


To create a local theme for your fair or festival, select one of the artists from our Country & Bluegrass Page to play Mountain Music, traditional Country Music or Bluegrass Music native to North Carolina--a traditional favorite at fairs and festivals across the state.  Consider a jazz trio or quartet from our Jazz & Swing Artists Page for special events during your fair or festival

If you want to encourage dancing, go to our Jazz & Swing Artists Page to audition the artists and bands who specialize in providing this type of music. To appeal to a broad range of ages, consider a Rock 'n Roll Show or Variety Band from our Rock & Pop Page.
