This year you can “Find Your Fun” at the Canyon County Fair with a stellar lineup of country music acts and a Medieval jousting act that are free with your fair admission.

The fair runs July 23-26.

8 p.m. July 23: This is a two-fer with Old Dominion and guests Haley & Michaels. As song writers, the members of Old Dominion started their careers creating songs for The Band Perry, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and opening for Trace Adkins, Brett Eldridge and Jake Owen. Their sound blends country lyrics and rock instrumentation fused with pop and hip-hop sensibilities. Northern California natives Shannon Haley and Ryan Michaels met and started their combined musical career in Nashville.

8 p.m. July 24: Up-and-coming country star Brett Eldredge currently has a single on the Top 10 country charts “Don’t Ya,” and his debut album “Bring You Back” is slated to be released Aug. 6. This is your chance to see this opening act headline on his own. He is scheduled to open 19 dates for Taylor Swift on her “The RED Tour.”

8 p.m. July 25: Mercury Nashville recording artist Easton Corbin will bring his traditional country sound and authentic lyrics to Caldwell. His self-titled debut album released in 2010 spawned back-to-back hits “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It,” making him the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1.

7 p.m. July 26: The Knights of Valour will give an exhibition of horsemanship with mounted games competition and a full heavy-armor jousting tournament. Watch as some of North America’s best full-contact jousters compete for the title of champion in this unchoreographed show.
