Family Fun: The Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival Opens Friday, February 16th

WAR is Set to Take the Stage on Opening Night

The Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival is located in Indio, California, an oasis situated in the vast California desert, approximately 130 miles east from Los Angeles. The Fair started as a festival to celebrate the end of the annual date harvest in the desert region, the major commercial date-producing area in the western hemisphere.

The Annual Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival has a star-studded performer lineup for the 2018 Fair.

Back by popular demand, WAR is set to take the stage on opening Friday, February 16th at 7:30 p.m. Fairgoers can once again groove to WAR’s, “Why Can’t We Be Friends?,” “Slippin’ Into Darkness,” “Don’t Let No One Get You Down,” “Cisco Kid,” and “Low Rider.”

Platinum selling country star Chase Rice will perform at the Fair on Saturday, February 17th at 7:30 p.m. Rice released his highly anticipated sophomore album, Lions & Lambs, November 17th. His first single from Lambs & Lions, “Three Chords & The Truth,” is currently Top 40 and climbing the country charts. Rice’s debut album Ignite the Night debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums.
