NYS Fair concert guide: 11 must-see shows for all types of music fans


Do you like country music? Hip-hop or rock’n’roll? A little bit of everything? Then there is definitely a gig for you at the Great New York State Fair 2021.

Over 50 national acts have been booked for this year’s NYS Fair, with two shows per day at Chevy Park and Chevy Court. The Chevy Park stage, where this year’s biggest concerts will take place, is located in the New York Experience zone at the western end of the fairground near Midway. Chevy Court will generally host small gigs during the Fair, a change from previous Covid-based plans to host all gigs on the Chevy Park stage (formerly known as the New York Experience stage).

Here’s what you need to know if you go:

Do I need Chevy Court or Chevy Park tickets?

All NYS Fair concerts are free with $ 3 entry to the fair. No tickets are required for concerts; NYS Fair Entrance Tickets Admission is also free for anyone 65 and over or for children under 12 daily.

And the Covid-19?

There are currently no restrictions for concerts; masks are not required and no proof of vaccination is required to enter the fair. Masks are mandatory indoors in all NYS Fair buildings, according to Onondaga County Director Ryan McMahon, but Chevy Park and Chevy Court are outdoor locations. (That being said, Onondaga County is currently experiencing a “high” rate of Covid transmission and you may still want a face covering for the busier concerts where social distancing is not possible.)

Who performs at the New York State Fair?

Big names in the 2021 lineup include Nas, Foreigner, Dropkick Murphys, AJR, Train, Brothers Osborne, Nelly, Third Eye Blind, Joan Jett, and Cheap Trick.

Local and regional artists include Hard Promises, Sydney Irving & Mojo, The Ripcords, Scorey, Isreal Hagan & Stroke, Brownskin Band, Waydown Wailers, Dark Hollow and The Jess Novak Band.
