New York State Fair
The New York State Fair starts on Thursday, Aug. 21, and runs through Monday, Sept. 1. It’s open 8 a.m. to midnight and is filled with unusual foods, free concerts, rides, agricultural displays, fancy chickens, animal demonstrations and competitions, and so much more. A new rides operator this year means different attractions and price options. The fair is located at (of course) the New York State Fairgrounds in Geddes. Admission is $10; it’s free for kids age 12 and younger. Parking costs $5. Advance price deals abound. For more details about the fair, visit www.nysfair.org.
