North Dakota State Fair Issues Official Statement Regarding Kid Rock Cancellation

MINOT, N.D. – The cancellation of the North Dakota State Fair Kid Rock Concert was a decision made by Ward County sheriff, state fair management, Kid Rock’s management, the show’s producer, and the stage production manager. Due to the safety concerns of the high winds, lightening, and severe weather in the area, the Kid Rock concert was cancelled as it posed a serious threat to the safety of those individuals attending or setting-up the event.


The North Dakota State Fair has issued refunds to all ticket purchasers that purchased their tickets off the ND State Fair website. If you purchased with a card, the money will be refunded to that card within the standard 5-7 business days. If you purchased with cash, please do not discard your ticket or receipts as we will need a way to show that specific ticket was purchased by the ticket purchaser. A photo ID will be required for cash refunds and the ticket must match the name on the ID. If the ticket was not purchased directly from the ND State Fair, you will need to contact the entity or person you purchased the ticket from for refund information.


We want to thank everyone for your patience.
