2004 Grandstand Acts

The governor announced the grandstand acts for this year’s Illinois state fair:

  • Fri 08/13 Clay Aiken
  • Sat 08/14 Clint Black and Bill Engvall
  • Sun 08/15 Styx and Kansas
  • Mon 08/16 Horse Racing
  • Tue 08/17 Horse Racing
  • Wed 08/18 To be announced
  • Thu 08/19 Tractor Pulls
  • Fri 08/20 Charlie Daniels Band and Travis Tritt
  • Sat 08/21 Average White Band and Michael Mcdonald and Daryl Hall & John Oats
  • Sun 08/22 Illinois Symphony

With the exception of the Charlie Daniels Band and the Symphony, one word: Ugh. In past years, instead of horse racing at night, those dates have traditionally gone to rock and country type acts.

The other fair venues, which, believe it or not, usually have pretty good shows, will be announced at a later date.
