Kentucky Farm Bureau has sponsored a Gospel Music Contest and has had a Gospel presence at the Kentucky State Fair for nearly 70 years. This year’s showcase will be held on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. (EDT) in the South Wing Conference Center Upper Level of the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. Please note that the location and time of the showcase has changed from previous years. This is an exciting modification which will allow us to greatly enhance the quality of the event.

Entry forms must be signed by a county Farm Bureau President or their designee, include a video recording of the proposed performances, and postmarked by Friday, July 19, 2019. All entries will be prejudged and notified of their selection no later than Friday, July 26, 2019.

A total of twelve (12) acts will be selected consisting of four Gospel quartet groups, four soloists, and four Gospel variety acts. Gospel variety acts may be ensembles, bands, duets or others which would not fall into the traditional category of a soloist or a Gospel quartet group. The previous year’s “Best of Show” is not eligible to compete.
