Just In Time For St. Patrick’s Day, NYS Fair Announces The Dropkick Murphy’s return

The Dropkick Murphy’s are scheduled to make their fourth appearance at the Great New York State Fair.

The Celtic-influenced rockers Dropkick Murphys have been beloved by fairgoers since 2018, when they were booked as a last-minute replacement for Dickey Betts.

Since then, they’ve returned in 2019 and 2022, and are ready to hit the Suburban Park Stage again this summer at 8 p.m. Sunday, August 25.

After nearly three decades, the Dropkick Murphy’s remain bigger than ever, having generated half a billion streams and continuing to sell out venues around the world. They’ve headlined Boston’s Fenway Park and have been personally invited to share the stage with everyone from Foo Fighters to Bruce Springsteen to Mumford & Sons.

The Fair starts Wednesday, August 21, and runs through Labor Day, Monday, September 2. All concerts are included in the price of admission, which will go on sale later this summer. The Great New York State Fair is the most affordable state fair in the country.

In total, The Fair’s Chevrolet Music Series will feature 39 national recording acts. There will be a daily 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. concert at Chevy Court (located near Gate 1), and a daily 8 p.m. concert at Suburban Park (located on the western end of the Fairgrounds, beyond the Midway).
All concerts announced thus far are provided in the charts below. Fair staff will continue to update schedules on the Fair’s website at pages dedicated to Chevy Court and Suburban Park.
