I’ve been visiting the fair for at least 20 years. The fairgrounds are always clean and well maintained. The staff does an excellent job of keeping everything looking good.

Visited with the kids. We’re from out of town. We had a great time. Food was a little expensive for my liking and ride pases were $25 each. Other than that we really liked it.

Came for the NYS Fair. It was amazing to see all the variety. I was so surprised that they had such a large space. Lots of $1 items and discounted entry for seniors. Will probably be back.

I have always gone to our local county fairs and loved them dearly. This was the family's first State Fair. While fancier and cleaner, I wouldn't make the trip to see more of the same. That being said, I wish I had a second day...More

Great place to spend the day and a lot of money. Tons of stuff to do, amazing food to try, plenty of rides to ride, and lots of free entertainment. Get there as early as possible so you can experience everything. You won't regret it!

Huge venue for a large car show. Lots of amenities like restrooms and indoor facilities. It is not very easy to navigate though. There are no maps, no sections so you really need to “explore” your way around. That would be fine but if it’s...More
