Top recording Christian group Casting Crowns presented by 88.7 The Bridge will perform in the M&T Bank Grandstand at the Delaware State Fair on Friday, July 20. Tickets for the concert go on sale at 10 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 9, and can be purchased at

“In 2012, we wanted to explore the Christian genre of music as it is a genre that we have not showcased in many years. Along with our partners at 88.7 The Bridge, we felt that Casting Crowns was such a great fit," said Danny Aguilar, Assistant General Manager and Director of Marketing. “We are very excited to offer our patrons a different type of concert to attend.”

Tickets are $36 for track and stadium seats and $31 for grandstand and clubhouse seating. Tickets for the new orchestra pit section are $61.

The Delaware State Fair has developed a new orchestra pit section that brings the fan closer to the artist than ever before. The “pit” section is located just feet away from the stage and will be a general admission, standing room only (with no chairs) section. Due to the limited number of tickets available for this area, make sure you sign up for our email list for updates and opportunities to purchase tickets in advance. The pit tickets can be purchased under the PRICE, LOCATION, & SECTION tabs. Pit tickets cannot be purchased under “Best Available.” The “pit” is general admission standing room only (with no chairs) and tickets are priced at $61. All other tickets (track, stadium, grandstand, and clubhouse) will be reserved seating with chairs. Concert attendance does require the purchase of a separate gate admission ticket.

Over the past eight years, Atlanta based Casting Crowns has consistently delivered music that points believers back to what truly matters, and the band does so yet again on Come to the Well. Casting Crowns continues to deliver passionate, thought-provoking music, yet these songs are among the most intensely personal offerings the group has ever shared.

The 2012 Delaware State Fair will be held July 19 to 28. Currently, Jason Aldean and Larry the Cable Guy tickets are already on-sale. Other artists in the Delaware State Fair Summer Concert Series will be announced in the coming months.
