This July Monticello is going to part like it's 1999! Creed will be bringing their Summer of '99 tour to the Great Jones County Fair, and we couldn't be any more fired up!

Creed is comin', and they're bringing some friends

Creed had a massive few years in the late 1990's/early 00's. While they faded away for a stretch of time, their popularity came roaring back with a vengeance more recently. Towards the end of their epic World Series-winning season, the Texas Rangers embraced the band, even though they're from Florida, not Texas. With their fans having literal sing-alongs during games, the band was back in the mainstream in a huge way.

Further capitalizing on our love for nostalgia, Creed has launched their Summer of '99 tour which will feature a Friday evening stop at the 2024 Great Jones County Fair. Joining Creed will be fellow popular aughts bands Switchfoot and Finger 11.

Bringing all your favorite songs to the Great Jones County Fair, you won't want to miss this mix of high-energy nostalgia and a good time.

Oh, and we have free four-packs, including fair admission, that you can win!
