“Year after year, the Great New York State Fair continues to break attendance records and attract visitors from across the globe with affordable, world-class entertainment,” Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said. “With the addition of the Fairgrounds’ new Expo Center and more discounts than ever before, the Fair is poised to once again welcome a record-breaking number of visitors to see all that Central New York has to offer.”
This year, the Fair will debut its brand new $63 million Exposition Center—the largest clear-span events space north of New York City between Boston and Cleveland. The building will feature a temporary ice rink and an interactive exhibit from I Love New York highlighting the state’s tourism, which builds on its successful operation last year in the Center of Progress Building. The highly popular annual sand sculpture will move to the Expo Center this year as well. The Fair has also worked with various groups to create tournaments and exhibitions for sports like hockey, figure skating, speed skating, and broomball. Below is a list of other activities and events at the 2018 Great New York State Fair.
It goes without saying that you can’t have a fair without fair food, and a key highlight at the fairgrounds facelift is the Taste NY Market, where guests will enjoy local wines, craft beers, spirits and cheeses from New York vendors. Free samples are available as vendors rotate daily.
Did you know the Great New York State Fair is an affordable way to see some incredible musical talent this summer? Catch performances from Blondie, Ludacris, Counting Crows, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, ZZ Top, Pentatonix, Ozzy Osbourne and more at the fair’s multiple music stages this year.
