WAR, Gary Allan coming to Fair
The Stanislaus County Fair entertainment lineup will open on July 8 with WAR.

The Stanislaus County Fair is gearing up for a return of a full 10-day run this year, with two music acts already in the lineup to entertainment visitors.

The 2022 musical entertainment will open with everyone’s favorite low rider, WAR, on July 8 on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m.

Multi-platinum-selling WAR, the original street band, has been sharing its timeless music and message of brotherhood and harmony for almost five decades before millions across the globe.  WAR has sold more than 50 million records since its formation to include 10 Billboard Top 10 hits. Top 40 hits include the timeless classics “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” “Low Rider,” “The World is a Ghetto,” “The Cisco Kid,” and many more. WAR’s influence is still felt in modern times. With samples and nods by artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Flo-Rida, Thomas Rhett, Tupac, Smash Mouth, Janet Jackson, Dave Matthews, Korn, and countless others, it is evident that WAR remains a household name.

Country artist Gary Allan will perform on July 12 on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. The concert is hosted by KAT COUNTRY 103.3 and is free with the price of Fair admission.

 “This summer will be filled with artists that will rock our main stage and Gary Allan will bring his country flow to our Fair,” said Jose Piña, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair.

With the allure of a modern-day outlaw, Allan has won over fans, peers and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances. While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way. “RUTHLESS,” Allan’s first new album in eight years, was released in June 2021. The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row) and produced his fifth No. 1 country radio chart topper with “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain).” The California native released his first album, “Used Heart for Sale,” in 1996 and since then has released eight additional studio albums selling over 8 million albums, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums, and been certified gold five times. Allan has five No. 1 hits at country radio, 14 Top 10 hits to his credit and amassed over 2.8 billion total streams. 

The 2022 Stanislaus County Fair opens July 8 for a 10-day run. Discounted Fair admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands and the Fair season pass will be on sale beginning April 30.  Corporate ticket sales will also be available to purchase at a discounted rate.
