The King of Rock 'n' Roll will be honored at the Chautauqua County Fair on Central Avenue in Dunkirk, NY this year when Western New York resident Terry Buchwald performs his well-known tribute to Elvis Presley at the Budweiser Grandstand on July 24.

"Audiences across the nation are astonished by his dynamic voice and striking resemblance to Elvis," said fair association president James Tytka, Sr. "By all accounts, he has the looks, the moves and the voice of Elvis. We are thrilled to be bringing him to the Fair this year."

Tytka noted that admission to the Elvis concert is included with the purchase of the Fair's pay-one-price advance sale or gate admission ticket. In the event of rain, the performance will take place at the Arthur R. Maytum Family Theater.

Buchwald has sold more than 35,000 Elvis tribute CDs and has been the opening act for national recording artists Lee Greenwood, Diamond Rio, Montgomery Gentry, Rick Springfield, Jim Brickman, Sixpence None the Richer, Johnny Rivers, Grassroots and the Charlie Daniels Band.

He performed in the Elvis mini-series on CBS in 2005, at former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly's NFL/ESPN retirement party and for the Emmy Award cast parties for television shows "Ally McBeal" and "The Practice."

The Chautauqua County Fair runs July 21-27 at the fairgrounds in Dunkirk.

The Fair's pay-one-price admission includes unlimited mechanical midway rides, all Arthur R. Maytum Family Theater and Budweiser Grandstand shows except demolition derby reserved seating, and all other events and exhibits at the fair. Purchase of an advance sale or a daily gate admission ticket is required to attend all Budweiser Grandstand events.

Advance sale tickets for the Fair are available through July 20 at many area retailers and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the fair's Central Avenue ticket office. Ticket outlet and event information is available at the fair's Web site,, or by calling the fair office at 716-366-4752.
