New York State Fair

Joan Jett and The Blackhearts are a force! With a career that’s encompassed music, TV, film, and even Broadway, Joan is an inspiration to generations of women, as well as anyone who has struggled to carve their own path. We’ve been fortunate enough to have this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band play at The Fair a few times over the years. It’s incredible when artists of this magnitude want to come back to The Fair and continue to connect with fans. - Fair Director Sean Hennessey
