A fantastic lineup of international Hispanic entertainers at the Stanislaus County Fair is sure to be la fiesta del verano (the party of the summer).

The Stanislaus County Fair welcomes Banda Rancho Viejo on Sunday, July 16 and Lupillo Rivera on Sunday, July 23. They will be performing on the Bud Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. Both concerts will be hosted by La Favorita and are free with the price of Fair admission.

“Hispanic acts are one of the most popular attractions we have at the Fair,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “Their performances always draw an energetic crowd and we are thrilled to have them all performing at Fair.”

Banda Rancho Viejo is a hit-making family group that plays rancheras, cumbias and corridos. The group was originally created in Peraza, Sinaloa, Mexico in 2006. The 13 musicians have worked together for over a decade to reach the top of the radio charts year after year. Their most successful hits include: “Baila Esta Cumbia,” “Amor a la Ligera” and “Mi Veces Ti Quiero.” Banda Rancho Viejo released their latest album, “La Bandononoma en Mi Rancho,” in March of 2016.

Lupillo Rivera is an award-winning singer of Mexican folk music. Throughout his 25 years in the music industry, Rivera has earned both critical and commercial success. In 2010, he won a Grammy Award for his album, “Tu Esclavo y Amo.” His latest album, “El Malo” was released in March of 2017 to warm reviews and record sales. The album includes music he wrote for his new reality show that airs every Sunday on Univision. The show focuses on his family and gives fans an inside look at his daily life.
