The Fair will run June 22 through July 8 and includes 17 days of concerts that are free with admission. Some of the confirmed acts are:
* June 30 - ConFunkShun is among the heroes of Funk's Upswing. With an unshakable commitment to strong melodies, inventive horn arrangements and killer ballads, the group was essential to the evolution of funk. Originating in the Bay Area, it brought home four consecutive gold albums and one platinum album, eight Top Ten R&B hits, and one No. 1 smash ("Ffun") over a 10-year period with Mercury Records.
* July 1 - A wild disco stage show this Sunday features the Village People. The group is synonymous with '70s dance music, with hits "Y.M.C.A.," "In The Navy" and "Macho Man."
* July 2 - Tommy Castro Blues was voted Artist of the Year 2006 by readers of BluesWax, the largest subscribed blues publication in the world. From his humble start at small bars in San Francisco to opening up for B.B. King, San Jose native Tommy Castro is bringing his blues style and grace to the Fair.
* July 3 - The Fair offers $2 Tuesday and a night of laughs with 3 Blonde Moms. This top-notch, high-energy, standup comedy show is jam-packed with hysterical material about being a Mom, having a Mom, husbands, in-laws and more.
