Nearly $10,000 in total prize money will be awarded to the first through third-place winners in three divisions. Entries are accepted for all age groups and categories are: Open Division, for any age; Teen Division, ages 13-18; and Preteen Division, ages 12 and under.

Auditions for the Amateur Talent Contest run Monday, July 22 through Sunday, July 28 at the Leinie Lodge Bandshell on the fairgrounds.
