Get ready to rock out this Labor Day as Jackyl, the iconic rock band with over 30 years of touring under their belt, takes the stage at Suburban Park on Monday, September 2 at 6:00 p.m. This electrifying performance marks the grand finale of The 2024 Great New York State Fair’s 13-day run.


Since exploding onto the scene in the early 1990s, Jackyl has left an indelible mark on rock music. Their debut LP achieved double platinum status, featuring hits like “I Stand Alone,” “When Will it Rain,” and the unforgettable “The Lumberjack,” complete with lead singer Jesse James Dupree's infamous chainsaw solo.

A Flare For The Dramatic

Julie LaFave, Interim Fair Director, expressed anticipation for Jackyl’s performance, stating, “Major rock and roll acts are always among our most requested concerts year-in and year-out. Jackyl’s flare for the dramatic and its energetic, in-your-face sound has thrilled audiences at some of the world’s most celebrated venues and festivals.”


Known for their dynamic stage presence and relentless touring ethic, Jackyl holds two Guinness World Records, including one for playing 100 shows in 50 days, with an astonishing 21 shows in a 24-hour period.
