American Idol Auditions Coming to State Fair


The New Mexico State Fair and American Idol are teaming up to find the best voices in New Mexico through a local audition.

“American Idol is iconic and with auditions already happening, we figured why not bring it to the State Fair,” said Dan Mourning, New Mexico State Fair general manager. “This is an amazing opportunity to be first in line and we can’t wait for New Mexicans to come out and showcase their talent.”

To be considered for an audition, your birthday must be between June 2, 1994, and Feb. 15, 2009. Applications are currently open, but it will be capped at 20 entrants.

The New Mexico State Fair Idol Competition will be held Sept. 10, at 7 p.m. at the Chevron Pavilion. This event will be karaoke-style, meaning the 20 participants will sing a song of their choice. The top-three of the competition will move on to a zoom audition with producers from American Idol.

All applications are due by Sept 1. All participants and guardians to minors 17 and under will receive free parking and admission into the fair. To apply, see
