Central New Yorkers associate the end of summer with the New York State Fair. This historic and prized tourism event is ever-changing and evolving to best represent the State and all of the wonderful things that make our State great.
Once again this year, fair-goers will be met with many changes at the Fair:
These improvements are part of a multi-year investment plan initiated by Gov. Cuomo to revitalize the 127-year-old fairgrounds. First implemented for the 2016 Fair with a new main gate, an RV-park and a new midway area, the $50 million investment lead to record-setting attendance.
There are more exciting changes planned for the New York State Fair, funded by $50 million included in the 2017-18 state budget and $20 million from the Upstate Revitalization Initiative Investment: an 80,000-square-foot hybrid building and Expo Center available for year-round use is expected to be built by the opening of the 2018 NYS Fair. Also expected to be completed by the 2018 NYS Fair is a new on-ramp to I-690 West and more improvements to the Orange lot to improve parking and traffic congestion.
