The Great NYS Fair Showcase The Best Of New York

The Great New York State Fair is a wonderful tradition that truly encompasses the best of New York. From August 27 to September 7, New Yorkers will be delighted by food, music, and exhibits highlighting products and experiences offered in our state. I encourage all of you to bring family and friends to soak up the atmosphere provided by this unique 12-day Central New York event.
One of the trademark features of the Fair is the wide selection of quality music and entertainment. This year, Eric Church with The Cadillac Three and comedian Jim Gaffigan will be performing on the Grandstand, and, Sawyer Fredericks with Josh Batstone and Amanda Lee Peers; Rick Springfield; The Steve Miller Band; and Nick Jonas, among others, will be performing as part of the Chevy Court Concert Series. To find a full list of performers, visit and
Each year the Fair offers new and exiting attractions. This year, I am particularly excited about the additions to the newly renamed Armed Forces Day, which will honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Displays will feature a collection of vehicles and equipment the men and women who protect us around the globe use to keep us safe. Also new this year, Equine Avenue will allow attendees to view and learn all about horses and their upkeep. Games and demonstrations will help make the experience truly interactive. Finally, the Star Spangled Challenge will allow competitors to duke it out for a chance to sing the national anthem each day before the gates open.
Of course, there will be plenty of Fair staples that will be sure to keep the whole family entertained. The New York State Police Exhibit located in front of the International Pavilion will again dazzle spectators with demonstrations of “high angle rescue” and “tactical access” rappelling techniques. The Wine, Beer and Cheese Seminars and Tasting Events and Dairy Day will help promote the amazing local products made right here in New York. For a daily schedule of the activities at the Fair, visit
