Banda Macho will be featured at the Deschutes County Fair this year.

Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo returns for its 103rd edition on August 2-6.

Fresh off one of the biggest fairs in its history, the Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo has a star-studded entertainment lineup in store for 2023.

The Old Crow Medicine Show has established itself as America's most beloved old-time string band and one of Nashville's most revered musical torchbearers. They will play the Kendall Toyota of Bend Free Summer Concert Series at the Fair & Rodeo on Wednesday, August 2. Their signature song, "Wagon Wheel," is one of the most widely sung folk songs in history, and was recently certified by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as one of the top- five country singles of all time.

On Thursday, August 3, country music rising star Carly Pearce takes the stage fresh off tour with Kenny Chesney. Pearce has four No. 1s including: "What He Didn't Do," "I Hope You're Happy Now," "Never Wanted to Be That Girl," and "Every Little Thing." She is the reigning ACM Awards Female Artist of the Year.

On Friday, August 4, All Time Low and their pop/punk catalog, streamed nearly half a billion times, will hit the High Desert. Since 2003, the group has notched five straight Top 10 entries on the Billboard Top 200, spanning the gold-certified "Nothing Personal," "Dirty Work," "Future Hearts," and "Last Young Renegade." Their hit single "Monsters" recently earned All Time Low nominations for "Alternative Song of the Year" and "Alternative Artist of the Year" at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards, in addition to nominations for "Top Rock Song" at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards and "Favorite Rock Artist" at the 2021 American Music Awards.

On Saturday, August 5, the words "Yeah," "Ok," and "What" will have a new meaning for Central Oregon as multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning artist Lil Jon hits the stage. His smash hits "Turn Down for What," "Bend Ova" feat. Tyga, "Get Loose," "Live the Night," "Savage," have popularized the southern movement and lifestyle known as Crunk. His new hit with Pitbull, "Jumpin,'" is rocketing up the charts.

For the second year in a row, the Deschutes County Fair will also present a Sunday concert as part of its Toyota of Bend Free Summer Concert Series. Sunday, August 6 features Banda Machos y Banda Maguey. Banda Machos specializes in the Technobanda genre. They are best known for popularizing the Quebradita dancing style that became popular in the 1990s in Mexico and the United States. Their songs are often satirical, filled with double entendres. Some of these include "Las Nachas," "Me Llamo Raquel," "El Próximo Tonto," "La Manguera," and "Sigues Siendo La Reina." The band has been together for over 30 years and has recorded over 29 albums.

Banda Machos and Banda Maguey have been called the two most successful exponents of the Technobanda sound. A favorite during the 1990s Technobanda craze, Banda Maguey took over the radio waves with their debut album "Tumbando Caña" in 1994, which contained a number of hits including "El Alacran."

The Kendall Toyota of Bend Free Summer Concert Series will again be held outdoors to take advantage of the beautiful Central Oregon summer evenings. All concerts are included with fair admission; no additional ticket required.

For 2023, additional free entertainment will be provided throughout the grounds, including multiple new exclusive attractions, including: nightly drone light shows, sea lions splash, extreme sports shows, J.D. Platt's K9 Kings dog show, circus performers, magicians, hypnotists, music, and more.
