It is with incredible excitement that we announce ZZ Top as headliner for Shellabration 2018! Scheduled for Saturday, June 30th at Rogers Sports Complex, this show could be the biggest, most highly attended concert event in Fort Dodge history. By comparison, our previous attendance record was 8,100 in
2015 for Boston (with an average of 7,250 over the past four seasons). Given the potential, we're giddy just thinking about it!
