Get your discounted tickets for the 2017 Great New York State Fair
The countdown is on – the 2017 Great New York State Fair starts next month and right now you can save 40% off the regular one-day admission price – pay only $6 per ticket online or at our retail locations through August 23rd.
The nation’s oldest state fair is back with new renovations and beloved traditions like 25 cent cups of New York milk. New this year, the Fair will feature a sky ride along the Wade Shows Midway, a revitalized Turtle Mound stage in the Indian Village and a larger home for the New York State Police exhibit. Additionally, newly installed child care Centers will provide families with a comfortable, convenient and air-conditioned place to care for their children.
Last year the Fair set an all-time attendance record, with more than 1.1 million visitors, so for 2017, we’re adding an extra day so even more people can have fun at the Fair. The new 13th day of the Fair will be Wednesday, August 23rd.
The transformation of the Fair experience will continue with an additional $70 million investment announced by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo as part of the new FY 2018 State Budget. Phase II will build on the Governor’s Phase I investment of $50 million, which resulted in a beautiful new Main Gate, first-ever full-service RV park, expanded Midway and many other enhancements to attract new opportunities for the Fairgrounds year-round, driving tourism and boosting the Central New York economy. It’s already working: Attendance at non-Fair events is up nearly 42% since last year!
