It holds about 7000 people -- you do the math. Hell I would pay $10.00 just to get out of the house.

We had a good city council last election,good competition and good people ran. We need a competive race for mayor don't just let one person dominate the office. A real knock race would help city government. How about former mayor Amos miller jumping in the race or ms. Remus I think she would be an excellent mayor.

I come from Frankfort to see the concerts and it is the only reason I go to NIBROC. I wouldn't have a problem with a reasonable fee attached to the concerts; however, so many cannot afford even a small fee. What about having a small fee attached and those get preferred seating while others can come and listen free, but no seating?

. You spoke the truth! Why don't that dumbass take some of the liquor tax money, and put toward concerts for Nibroc? Last thing they need is new police cars. They need to fix the terrible roads downtown, and improve the city, instead of taking away from it! Everyone should boycott Nibroc, and go to the Chicken Fest. It's much better anyway! And Mr Mayor, you need to step up a little. Cause you sure are slacking!

I drove 4 hours every year to the Nibroc just for the entertainment and run into people I haven't seen in years..I really enjoyed it..and when I come down the merchants do get a part of my money...I give to the community and on top of that the gas money I spent to drive to Corbin,Ky ...so sad I will miss the NIBROC! will not be the same without the CONCERTS!GOODBYE CORBIN!
Goodbye Nibroc

For many years now, we have "one upped" the Chicken Festival, by having somewhat first class entertainment at the Nibroc. I am from Corbin and have always been proud, that the Nibroc would continue to have, a kind of entertainment that the hillbilly festival in London didn't have. I just happen to be the same age as the Nibroc and thought I would forever take pride in it having these concerts. I admit, some years were better than others, but that is the way with everything in life. I feel like playing "taps" for this time honored tradition, for this is definitely the beginning of the END!

If you refer to it as 'the Nibroc' you need a douche. I guess no Concerts means we are spared from seeing Hank Williams IV and The Jackson 2. So sad :-(
same ol booths

Vender booths were priced at $500.00. Higher than craft fairs in large cities.This is the reason nothing new comes to the nibroc.fyi

<quoted text> Free? I pay my taxes.. What's wrong with giving back to the community? & YES I do pay to go to concerts... Nibroc will not be Nibroc without the entertainment... What does Mayor Jackass thinks gonna bring in the crowds? Floats? Contest? Rides? NOT I...
Corbin City has alcohol sales tax now.. thats why people are coming from the back hollars to Corbin now.. everyday is like Nibroc.. we have a town full of people that used to only come once a year (on Nibroc) now they come for the spirits!

I worked at a local convenience store for the past 7 Nibrocs.. most every business owner or employee talked negetive about closing main street..and how horrible it was to be on Main street during that week. I think the business owners were the ones wanting Main Street left open. I would say that our local government responded to that.. and alcohol sales brings in all that extra revenue. Times have changed..
I would work on a float if I were a part of some kind of group in Corbin.. its on my bucket list!

Maybe it is time Nibroc shrinks a little bit. How about they drop the price to have a booth so that some of the local people, besides the Whitley County Cattlemen, will set up.
I have nothing against the cattlemen. In fact, that is the only place at Nibroc that I will buy food. Would like to see some of the local organizations use Nibroc to make some money instead of it all going up the road and out of town.

agree : most of those meat wagons that come in town from who knows where, have the left overs from there , sitting in the hot sun for days on end with flys blowing it. no wonder so many people get sick from the food. yeh, thats right have a gyro sandwich ! the ones that serve them LOOK like a GYRO ! heeheehee
