SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Music at the State Fair gets the green light to move to the Chevy Court stage.
After last week’s announcement from Governor Cuomo, saying the Fair can operate at 100% capacity, the Great New York State Fair has followed suit with its music festival.
“We’re planning the biggest and best fair in our 180-year history and investing more than ever in the greatest free music lineup at any fair in America,” said Troy Waffner, the NYS Fair Director. “Moving our biggest shows to the 15-acre Chevy Park stage means more people than ever will be able to enjoy these concerts and have plenty of room to feel safe and comfortable and to dance if the spirit moves them.”
Waffner said concerts with fewer than 20,000 people will be at Chevy Court and concerts with more than 20,000 will be at Chevy Park. The space at Chevy Park will also allow bigger shows to bring in large banks of lights and video walls.
The Chevy Park Stage is located on the west end of the Fairgrounds near Gate 10. There will be transportation. The tram has a stop near Gate 10.
National touring concerts will take place on the Chevy Court stage at 7 p.m. and on the Chevy Park stage at 8 p.m. Concerts scheduled for 2 p.m. will be scheduled for either stage, depending on the Fair’s estimate of attendance. Local and regional bands will be scheduled to perform on both stages, depending on the available openings.
