I don't have a problem with the acts that they booked, but am really disappointed that there isn't a rock act this year. I know that country music is popular in this area, but a lot of people come out for the classic rock shows that they usually have each year. I'm sure that the beach boys tribute is good, but it's not something most people under 50 would be interested in.

So join the board, and do the work, and offer your input rather that criticize and whine about it after the fact.

The operative word here being WORK. This stuff doesn't happen by itself.

Nobody is criticizing or whining, just stating an opinion. I'd be happy to offer my input to the fair board, and maybe I will. Obviously planning and booking the acts for the fair is work, and doesn't happen by itself. That pretty much goes without saying.

Excellent choices on the country slate, but they really dropped the ball by not getting a rock band.

What? Crapping on the beer tent?

That should at least get you fertilizer.

Gotta love those green rooves, I guess.

The money earned at the beer tent pays for the next year's entertainment. Keep limiting what and where they can sell and they will continue to lose sales. Which means less and less money for good talent.

Well they signed Randy Travis, which obviously cost a ton. They usually book great talent, this year notwithstanding. I just wish there was a true rock act.

Bowersox will have a great show and bring a LOT of fans to the fair that wouldn't normally attend. I personally know of about 200 people coming to the fair to see her perform.

I agree we need rock/roll,70's 80's- 90's and maybe new /old country artist to for the older age groups, instead they are getting people that have been here or near the area, trying to save money? if they just try to bring in a popular rock group they might see how it would help the fair and the area.... ask for the public interest,vote for what people want, raise the fee a little for the exspensive concert it might be worth the outcome..& people may spend the money ,they might have more crowds.. they need to look around and see whats playing down in saratoga,darien,toronto.ect.. this fair goer is totally disappointed
need entertainment
