Five Bands confirmed for The “Great” NYS Fair
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that this year’s New York State Fair is set to go on after last year’s event was canceled because of the pandemic. This year’s NYS Fair will take place from August 20th through September 6th with 50% capacity.
The “Reimagined New York State Fair” will still have food and beverages, amusement rides and games, farm animals, and most importantly concerts!
According to a press release, five acts will be part of the 2021 NYS Fair concert lineup:
- REO Speedwagon
- Dropkick Murphys
- Sheena Easton
- Great White with Vixen
- The Oak Ridge Boys
Dates and times were not immediately specified, but the Oak Ridge Boys’ website lists August 31th with a show in Syracuse.
All five shows were supposed to be part of the 2020 NYS Fair concert lineup.
Other NYS Fair concerts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks and months. Fair Director Troy Waffner said in February that 98% of their concerts were already booked.
