Grace Potter to Return to Chevy Court Stage
New York Ag Connection - 05/13/2019
Grace Potter returns to the Great New York State Fair's Chevrolet Music Festival for the first time in six years, performing with her band at 8 p.m. Aug. 22 on the Chevy Court stage. Potter last played here with her former band, The Nocturnals, which was
formed in St. Lawrence County, in 2013. Performances of the Chevrolet Music Festival at Chevy Court and on the Experience Stage are free with Fair admission.
"We're thrilled to welcome Grace Potter back. She's one of rock's great and most powerful singers. She blew the crowd away the last time she was here and it's a safe bet she'll do it again," said Fair Director Troy Waffner.
Over the Fair's 13 days, the Chevrolet Music Festival at Chevy Court and at the New York Experience Stage will feature more than two dozen national touring group performances in diverse genres. Chevrolet sponsors the performances on both stages.
Founded in 1841, the Great New York State Fair is America's third largest state fair. The Fair showcases the best of New York agriculture, provides top-quality entertainment and is a key piece of Governor Cuomo's CNY Rising strategy of growing the
Central New York economy through tourism. Fair attendance is up more than 40% since the beginning of more than $120 million in investments, with 1.27 million people attending the Fair in 2018. The 2019 Fair runs from Aug. 21 to Sept. 2.
