The Cowsills are set to play at this year's Woodstock Fair.

WOODSTOCK - The 158th annual Woodstock Fair, always Labor Day weekend (Aug. 31-Sept. 3), will be rocking into the night this year. Food, games, rides, agricultural exhibits, contests, and classic rock music will combine to create the fun atmosphere that is the trademark of this Northeastern Connecticut institution.

The Main Stage will host doubleheader headliners on Friday, Aug. 31 through Sun, Sept. 2. On Friday, VoicePlay, an award winning, world-renowned a cappella quintet and theatre show, will take to the stage at 6:30 p.m. The vocal percussion group, which has appeared on national television will delight with its original, imaginative and, sometimes, ridiculous stage show.

. . .

On Saturday, Sept. 1, two groups that dominated the music scene in the 1960’s will take center stage. At 2:30 p.m., the group that the television show, “The Partridge Family” was based on, The Cowsills, will perform.

Originally from Newport, R.I., the Cowsills will perform “The Rain, The Park & Other Things (Flower Girl)” among many other hits. At 8 p.m., another blast from the past, The Lovin’ Spoonful (“Summer in the City”) will perform.
