“We are so excited to bring live music of this caliber to Denton once again,” said NTFR Executive Director Glenn Carlton. “We strive every year to make this event better than it was the previous year, and these artists are sure to put on a great show for all our wonderful fairgoers.”
Each evening, NTFR will also have supporting concerts on the Cool Zone Revolver Stage with both local artists and upcoming talent from across the country.
