WEATHER PROMPTS CHANGES TO GRANDSTAND AND ARENA PROGRAMS
Monday night’s Truck and Tractor Pulls in the Arena have been cancelled. There are two more nights of Tractor Pulls planned at the Illinois State Fair, on Tuesday and Wednesday night. Shows start at 7:30pm each night.
Monday’s Grandstand performance by New Odyssey will begin at 7:30pm, but will be moved from the Grandstand to the Lincoln Stage. The Lincoln Stage provides our entertainers with a covered stage, as well as covered seating for our fairgoers. This will now be a FREE concert for fairgoers to enjoy.
New Odyssey (3 Guys-30 Instruments) is a cover band from Chicago playing all types of music from across the decades including today’s top hits. These songs are performed on 30 different musical instruments including a pocket trumpet, accordion, sousaphone, banjo, and bass trumpet. The key to making every performance a memorable experience is a combination of fun, audience interaction, offbeat light humor, attention-to-detail arrangements and an all-age appeal.
