Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, circus lovers from around the world! The Indiana State Fair announces its 2018 theme STEP RIGHT UP! to The Greatest 17 Days of Summer, August 3-19. For the first time the Indiana State Fair, the greatest showcase of agriculture and entertainment, is bringing fairgoers a world-class circus featuring acrobats, clowns, trapeze artists and more! The new Big Top Circus presented by Bee Window is FREE with paid State Fair admission.


The Big Top Circus will perform three shows daily, with seating limited to the first 1,600 people per show. This unique, family-friendly experience will be presented in a single-ring and will not include any exotic animals. The Indiana State Fair is committed to providing world-class entertainment in a safe and welcoming environment.


“Indiana has a rich Circus heritage, so we are thrilled to offer our own Big Top Circus and add even more value and authentic moments to the State Fair experience,” said Cindy Hoye, executive director, Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center. “The Indiana State Fair is the greatest showcase of agriculture and entertainment, and I can’t tell you how excited we are to add a Circus into that mix.”


The Big Top Circus presented by Bee Window has been programmed specifically for the Indiana State Fair and features world-class performers such as Bello Nock.  Often known simply as “Bello”, he is referred to as the “World’s Greatest Comic Daredevil” and has been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records for a high wire walk over a cruise ship. He has performed several stunts in New York City, including rappelling off Madison Square Garden and hanging from a helicopter over the Statue of Liberty. Bello performs without traditional clown makeup, with a signature look that revolves around his foot-tall strawberry blond hair. He has been included on Time Magazine’s list of America’s Best Artists and Entertainers.

In addition to the Circus, fairgoers will enjoy many other enhancements at this year’s fair including “Animal Town,” an interactive learning experience that showcases a variety of animals including cows, pigs, sheep, goats, horses, llamas, rabbits and chickens, on display all 17 days of the Fair.

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements, including the Chevrolet Free Stage concert line up, all leading up to opening day on Friday, August 3rd, when you can STEP RIGHT UP! and enjoy The Greatest 17 Days of Summer at the 163rd Indiana State Fair.

Jefferson County-Yesterday, Indiana State Police Detectives arrested a Commiskey man on two charges of sexual misconduct with a minor after a four month investigation.

The investigation by Detective Chris Howell began in December 2017 when Indiana State Police Detectives were contacted after allegations of sexual misconduct were reported.  The investigation determined that between August 2017 and December 2017, William M. Hardin, age 43, Commiskey, Indiana, allegedly sexually abused a female juvenile while she was 14 and 15 years old at Hardin’s residence near Commiskey in Jefferson County, Indiana.

At the conclusion of the investigation, the case was presented to the Jefferson County Prosecutor’s Office.  As a result, the Jefferson County Circuit Court issued an arrest warrant on April 9th for William Hardin on one charge of sexual misconduct with a minor, level 4 felony, and one count of sexual misconduct with a minor, level 5 felony.

Hardin was arrested around noon yesterday without incident.  He was transported to the Jefferson County Jail where he was incarcerated, pending his initial court appearance in the Jefferson County Circuit Court.
