UN ’n FUN was built by aviation enthusiasts for aviation enthusiasts, but also with the intent to strike a chord with the general public in such a way that just maybe others would become captivated by aeronautics.

One way to draw people in is through entertainment by air and land, and never has the lineup of fun been stronger.

Dylan Scott & Sara Evans in Concert

April 9, 6 p.m.

Once the high-pitched whistling and steady hum of jet and plane engines has kicked off the expo, a couple of country music stars Dylan Scott and Sara Evans will put an exclamation point on the opening day.

Scott has notched four No. 1 radio singles: “My Girl,” “Nobody,” “New Truck,” and “Can’t Have Mine (Find You a Girl.) The latter became a viral hit on TikTok, and his star has continued to rise as he has toured with the likes of Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Chris Young and others.

Evans is a country music veteran who has five No.1 singles to her credit including “Suds in the Bucket.” “A Real Fine Place to Start” and “A Little Bit Stronger.”

Evans and Scott will be performing from sunset into the night at the warbird ramp.

All general admission pass holders for the opening day of SUN ’n FUN will be able to enjoy the concert.

Mesmerizing Fireworks

The Bash Fundraiser

There’s no better way to support the next generation of aviation professionals at the Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE) than by throwing a massive party.
