There are certain guidelines that the State Fair will adhere to regarding the pandemic. For example your $3 ticket to the fair includes a ticket to these performances. The thing is that there will be a limited number of people allowed into the Chevy Park stage area. Make sure to head to get there early because once at it's COVID capacity nobody else will be allowed in.

Could these guidelines change as the months pass? Yes, you can be assured that there will be updates on policy regarding attendance, social distancing, mask mandates, etc. The way things have been progressing with the vaccine I would assume some of the guidelines will be eased. We will see.

According to Syracuse.com, food and beverages will be available inside the concert area. Families and groups will be assigned to a designated area from which they can enjoy the concert. Masks will be required any time a person is outside their designated area.
