What a great Fair Week it's been. Maddie & Tae excited the thousands of people who showed up to see them perform on Thursday night, while Old Dominion wowed close to 3,000 people on Friday night. But the shows aren't over!

Tonight, on Saturday, it's the Small Town Throwdown with the Broseph E. Lee Band. This concert is actually a fundraiser to help with some major building projects in the future at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds. One of the projects includes a new 45,000 square-foot multipurpose trade center.

“The idea sparked at our booking convention last fall,” said Lori Cox, general manager for the Fairgrounds. “We heard this amazing up-and-coming band, Broseph E. Lee, and we thought we should have a shindig to get this building started.”

The Small Town Throwdown brings together all user groups that utilize the Fairgrounds for their many events. Involved representatives from garage sales to lacrosse leagues to gun shows to 4-H will bein attendance. “More than 77 clientele book events at the Fairgrounds,” said Dennis Voeller, FacilitiesDirector. “We have at least a dozen groups that have severely outgrown their space. This newbuilding will accommodate their growth, attract new business and be a serious revenue generator forBozeman and Montana.” Voeller added that all 4-H livestock events, including the Junior Livestock
Market Sale, could be held under one roof during the Fair.

The Small Town Throwdown is Saturday, July 23 at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6 p.m. Tickets are $40 and are available online at 406StateFair.com. The ticket includes two complimentary drink tickets, floor access to the entertainment and all activities.

Broseph E. Lee will open for Maddie & Tae and Old Dominion on Thursday and Friday nights. Fans interested in listening to their Saturday performances apart from the Throwdown are welcome to sit in the grandstand at no charge.
