    Celtic Spring

    Featured finalists on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” Celtic Spring combines driving music, riveting dancing, youthful exuberance, and bursts of energy into one unforgettable show. The tight choreography, powerful footwork, intricacy and precision of the dancing is at times astounding, and just when the audience might think that they have seen it all, Celtic Spring erupts into the exceptional feat of dancing and fiddling at the same time!

    Delaware State Fair

    Today, the Kent and Sussex County Fair is now known as the Delaware State Fair and boasts attendance of over 307,000. As it exists today, the nearly 300 acre fairground encompasses several businesses including The Centre Ice Rink and the Harrington Raceway and Casino. Despite the awesome trend of bringing dynamic entertainers and a thrilling carnival, the Fair maintains its roots in agriculture. And every year, the Fair continues its tradition of being “Bigger and Better Than Ever.” Delaware State Fairgrounds, July 22nd – 30th.

    Blue Jupiter

    Blue Jupiter is a powerful pop-jazz-funk a cappella quartet: Marty the beatboxer, Chris the screaming-high tenor, Jonathan the human orchestra, and Diana- (Blue Jupiter’s secret weapon) a Broadway singer and voice-over artist. These four voices will set the audience ablaze with their infectious energy, seamless harmony and thunderous vocal percussion. You’ll swear they have a back up band… but they don’t.
