NYS Fair Concert Guide: Foreigner, Bryce Vine, Lawrence, more (Sunday August 28)
Welcome to our daily New York State Fair concert guide! We will post a list of artists and times each day of the 2022 NYS fair on syracuse.com.
The Chevy Park Stage, where the biggest concerts of this year’s fair will take place, is located in the New York Experience area at the west end near Gate 10 of the fairgrounds, at the back of the Midway and past the Expo Center. Chevy Court is located near Gate 1, next to the Center of Progress building and the Dairy Products building. Both have a limited number of places available.
No tickets are required for the concerts. All NYS Fair shows are free with admission to the fair, which is $3 this year; admission is also free for people 65 and over or children under 12 every day.
Here’s what to expect on Sunday, August 28 (Day 5):
