2021 Illinois State Fair Grandstand acts announced

SPRINGFIELD (WEEK) — Illinois State Fair officials are forging ahead with plans to hold the Illinois State Fair in August 2021 and have released the Grandstand acts that are scheduled so far.

The lineup for next year’s festival includes a standup act from Gabriel “Fluff” Iglesias, and music performances from Toby Keith, and George Thorogood and 38 Special.

However, if COVID-19 prevents the state fair from being held, ticket purchasers will receive a full refund.

This is also the first year tickets will go on sale — Dec. 15 — prior to the new year.

“We are excited about this year’s Illinois Lottery Grandstand lineup,” said Illinois State Fair Manager Kevin Gordon. “Our goal is to have entertainment for everyone and this diverse lineup accomplishes that goal. We will have more to announce soon to give us even more to be excited for in 2021.”
