June 23-Willie Nelson, Belly Up’s Blues Festival featuring Ron Piazza, Foghat
Probably the best night for music at the Fair. Country legend Nelson leads a pack of other country artists at the Main Stage. The Belly Up Tavern’s Blues feature is the mighty Ron Piazza, and some more good rock and roll can be found when Foghat hit’s the Paddock Concert Stage.

Old school rock and roll from Uriah Heep and then the legendary harmonies and surf song sing-a-longs of the Beach Boys

It’s Ms. Jett, a SD Fair staple bringing the rock, and then another great Belly Up sponsored show featuring San Diego talent Jackie Green

July 1-102.1 Singer-Songwriter Contest
