The Sangamon County Fair will be getting a date on a performer who needed a raincheck during the fair this year.

Country musician Riley Green will perform a free concert Oct. 6 in a show of appreciation from Sangamon County Fair directors. The one-night event at the fairgrounds in New Berlin will not require a ticket.

According to the Journal Courier, Green is making up the date from June 18th. Green’s performance was cut due to a storm that damaged equipment and instruments that shuttered the grandstands.

Parking for the October 6th date will be $10. Food and drink will be available for purchase. A raffle drawing will also be held to win a guitar autographed by Riley Green. Additional details will be posted at a later time to the Sangamon County Fair’s social media pages and website.
