The Dubuque County Fair has a tradition of bringing in Top 40 acts, and that tradition continues this year, as multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and dancer, Jason Derulo takes the stage Saturday, August 1st.

We've been waiting for this announcement for a while, and for a major star to come to Eastern Iowa.  So no doubt we're ecstatic about this announcement, especially as his new single "Want to Want Me" is taking off, and is already in consideration for "Song of the Summer".  Then throw in his other hits: "Whatcha Say", "In My Head", "Ridin Solo", "Don't Wanna Go Home", "It Girl", "Marry Me", "The Other Side", "Talk Dirty", "Trumpets", and of course "Wiggle", and you know this is going to be one spectacular party and show.

He is definitely the biggest Tip 40 act to play the Dubuque area in many years.
