At 2:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 27The Lettermen are expected to draw a large crowd during Seniors Day. For more than 50 years, The Lettermen — Donovan Tea, Bobby Poynton, and Rob Gulack, each of whom are entertainers in their own right — have kept the meaning of harmony alive with their soft, romantic, harmonic blend of music which is as popular with their fans today as it was in 1961 when they recorded their first hit, “The Way You Look Tonight.”


On Wednesday, Jan. 29, on the evening of the fair’s second Bike Night, Completely Unchained will perform at 8 p.m. Promoted as the Ultimate Van Halen Tribute Band, the group won the Tribute Band Competition at the 2019 fair.


Country music will fill the air at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 20, when Nashville-based Russell Dickerson takes the stage. A multi-platinum recording artist and 2019 ACM Award nominee for “Song of the Year,” Dickerson is one of country music’s most talked-about new talents.


The concert series will close on Saturday, Feb 1, with the 11th Annual Rock Tribute Band Competition, a favorite event among fairgoers and music lovers.

This is the biggest and oldest event in Palm Beach county.
