Who doesn't like a trip to the state fair? It's a time to not only enjoy some interesting food — often a piece of fat that's dipped in fat and fried in fat — but also to celebrate agriculture as well. And you can catch a concert when you're there. too.

The organizers of the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo have announced the first round of concerts for the 2017 big show. The groups lined up to perform at the Southwest Motors Events Center include a diverse lineup of performers, including country, classic rock, music legends and up-and-coming stars.

Sarah Cummings, state fair general manager, notes that the lineup is diverse, but it has a budget-friendly price tag. "Tickets purchased prior to August 24 include fair admission, giving fans the opportunity to arrive early and enjoy a full day at the fair with no additional cost," she says. "We will also be announcing the entertainment series for the Budweiser Rodeo Arena, which will include an exciting lineup of rodeo, derbies and monster trucks."

Here's a look at the lineup for the Southwest Motors Events Center lineup for the 2017 Colorado State Fair.

Aug. 25, Gabriel Iglesias. Known as "Fluffy," this standup comic brings his own unique perspective to comedy.

Aug. 31, Gary Allan. This "outlaw" country singer brings his own style to the concert stage.

Sept. 1, ZZ Top. These well-known bearded rockers are on their Tonnage Tour, and they'll bring their hard-rocking style to the stage.

Sept. 2, Skillet. This hard-rocking group with its "panheads" fan group brings its style to Colorado for a raucous — and likely loud — show.
