We are Rocking out at the stanislaus county fair!

“All-American Rejects”

July 13, 2023

Turlock, CA (April 21, 2023) – When you rock out with this epic band you can’t help but feel nostalgic. Their songs put a “big smile on your face that never feels out of place.” StanCo Fair, don’t “waste your days with thinking” instead, head on over to where life happens!


The Stanislaus County Fair is excited to have the “All-American Rejects”, on Thursday, July 13th at The Coors Light Stage at 8:30 p.m. Hosted by 97.7 KWIN and is free with the price of Fair admission.

 “A catchy chorus with a meaningful message is how this one-of-a-kind band engages its audience. I can’t wait to experience this live performance alongside StanCo Fair!” said Jose Piña, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair.

Vocalist/bassist Tyson Ritter and guitarist Nick Wheeler were best friends in high school in Stillwater, Oklahoma, when they founded The All-American Rejects in 1999. And while their emo-pop band has traveled far and wide and sold millions of albums in the years since, their music retains an irrepressible energy and infectious scrappiness, two qualities that seem quintessentially teenaged in the best sense. They’ve also always understood the lasting value of big sticky melodies, a lesson they absorbed from a wide range of early influences that included Bon Jovi and Def Leppard, as well as emo forebears such as Weezer and Jimmy Eat World. Already fully realized on their 2002 indie hit “Swing, Swing,” The All-American Rejects’ catchy mix of arena rock, power pop, and emo soon landed them a deal with DreamWorks. Later hits like 2005’s “Dirty Little Secret” and 2008’s “Gives You Hell”—which hit No. 1 on the iTunes chart—confirmed the wide appeal of Ritter and Wheeler’s sometimes snarky and always punchy songwriting.


The mission of the Stanislaus County Fair is to provide a family and community-oriented experience promoting agriculture, entertainment, and technology.


The 2023 Stanislaus County Fair is July 7-16. Discounted Fair admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands, and the Fair season pass will be on sale beginning Saturday, April 22, 2023.
