The James Dean Gallery and cities of Fairmont and Marion, Indiana

Farmer Jason’s 2.5 week residency at the Indiana State Fair was a huge success. He did 51 shows in 17 days!

TV and the press gave his show great coverage including mentions on NBC Affiliate WTHR WISH TV’s morning show feature and the Indy Star’s “Top Six Things To Do In Indianapolis” rundown as well as Indy Star: Hipster Guide to the Fair and NUVO: Nora at the Fair blog
