Sabrina Carpenter joins 2017 S.C. State Fair musical lineup

COLUMBIA – July 31, 2017 – Teenage pop sensation Sabrina Carpenter will entertain visitors at the 2017 South Carolina State Fair Oct. 22.

The singer, songwriter and actress is among six musical acts slated to perform in the Pepsi Grandstand during the fair’s 12-day run in Columbia.

“Sabrina Carpenter brings a fresh mix of entertainment to our Pepsi Grandstand lineup that is sure to delight many of our young guests,” said State Fair manager, Gary Goodman.

Carpenter’s journey into music, television and film began at the age of 2 when she followed in her older sister’s footsteps as a beginning ballerina. As her passion and skill in dance flourished, Carpenter surprised her family and friends by discovering her unique vocal talents.

Staying true to her first love of music, Carpenter released her debut album, Eyes Wide Open, at the age of 15. Fueled by youthful exuberance and irresistibly buoyant singles such as “Eyes Wide Open” and “We’ll Be the Stars,” the album reflected Carpenter’s life over the previous three years.

Carpenter released her sophomore album, EVOLution, in October 2016. The album’s current single, the instantly catchy “Thumbs,” is pushing through to Top 40 all across the country with a combined 100 million plus streams.

Sabrina Carpenter tickets are $15 and include fair admission. They will go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 6 and can be purchased at www.scstatefair.org.

This year’s fair also will feature Brothers Osborne Oct. 11, Keith Sweat Oct. 13, Chris Young Oct. 16, ZZ TOP Oct. 18, and TobyMac Oct. 20.

The S.C. State Fair is located at Rosewood Drive and George Rogers Boulevard across from Williams-Brice Stadium. This year's 148th anniversary State Fair will run Oct. 11-22.
