When I started with the entertainment side it was the same year that Variety Attractions became our agent. Working with Variety Attractions has been a pleasure, not only have we had a professional relationship but we have become friends. With the help of Variety Attractions, we began to take this fair to whole new level of shows, with much bigger entertainers, along with new stage, light and sound productions. In last couple of years we having started putting on the same shows you would pay big dollars to see, Stating with Justin Moore, Colt Ford and Florida Georgia Line just 2 years ago.

"The Great Jones County Fair in Monticello, IA has been a client of Variety Attractions for well over 40 years! The relationship that has been developed during this time has allowed our fair grow into one of the most unique venues for national recording artists to put on their tour schedules. The reputation that Variety has in the entertainment industry has allowed us to host entertainers and events that we certainly could not have achieved by ourselves. When our offers are represented by Variety, we get considered! We have also been directed by them to develop improved marketing plans, and improve our facilities which will keep us on the “radar” for years to come. I like to think that when you mention the “Great Jones County Fair”, you are also saying, “Variety Attractions”. I wouldn’t want to be here without them!"
