The singer of the band Boston, former Eagles guitarist Don Felder and an Elvis Presley tribute will be the headline musical acts for Schaumburg's first full three-day Septemberfest since 2019, set to take place over Labor Day weekend.

Tommy DeCarlo, the vocalist for Boston, will perform from 8:30 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 3, at the Robert O. Atcher Municipal Center grounds, 101 Schaumburg Court.

 

Felder will take the main stage from 8:30 to 10 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 4.

The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Experience starring Shawn Klush, Cody Ray Slaughter, the Nashville Dreams, The Ambassadors and the TCB Horns will serenade Septemberfest from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 5.

Opening acts on the main stage include Rosie & The Rivets from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and The Davenport Project from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Saturday; Chicago's Own Piano Man Band from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Radio Gaga from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Sunday; and EZFM with Diva Montell from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and 7th heaven from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Labor Day.

Other musical acts will play on the local stage, the craft beer and wine stage, and stroll the grounds.

Septemberfest, a Schaumburg tradition since 1970, was canceled by the pandemic on its 50th anniversary in 2020. There was a scaled-back, two-day version last year.

Besides the three stages of musical entertainment, this year's festival features a carnival, arts and crafts show, Taste of Schaumburg, the craft beer and wine area, and Bingo.
