Farruko to Perform at State Fair's Chevy Court
New York Ag Connection - 05/22/2019
Farruko, the Puerto Rico native and musical phenomenon who's currently #1 on YouTube's global top music videos chart with Pedro Capo in "Calma (Remix)," will make his Great New York State Fair debut at 8 p.m. Aug. 27 on the Chevy Court stage. All
performances of the Chevrolet Music Festival at Chevy Court and the Experience Stage are free with Fair admission.
"We are very excited to bring Farruko to Chevy Court. This show, and our expanded Latino Village Weekend festival, demonstrate our commitment to creating a Fair that involves all the cultures of our great state. He's an exciting performer and I know this will
be a memorable show," 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.
