Celebrate the Fourth with the music of Chicago, known as the “rock and roll band with horns.” With hits like “You’re the Inspiration,” "25 or 6 to 4," “If You Leave Me Now,” and “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” you’ll be swept away by the melodies that make this band such a beloved classic. To cap off the evening, sing along to your favorite patriotic tunes as we salute our armed forces and thrill to a sizzling fireworks show. And this year, parking is free!
Pre-Fair Concert. Guests may return with their tickets for FREE admission to the 2018 OC Fair.
