Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame band Cheap Trick will rock the Chevy Park stage as the closing act of the stage’s 2021 season at 6 p.m. Monday, September 6. It will be the seventh appearance at the Fair for the band behind the all-time hits “I Want You To Want Me” and “The Flame.” The Chevy Park stage is in the New York Experience festival area near the Midway. All shows in the Chevrolet Music Festival are free with $3 admission to the Fair.
Troy Waffner, Fair Director, said, “This is a perfect way to close the Fair’s music season – with one of the great rock bands of all time. They put on a wonderful show and this will be a great way to cap off a final day of rides, food and excitement.”
