Association of Agricultural Fairs Extends New York State Fair Dates

NEW YORK — The New York State Association of Agricultural Fairs (NYSAAF) represents 52 Agriculture Fairs throughout New York State. The association's objectives are to promote and encourage agriculture, horticulture, and the domestic arts through annual fairs, including material and educational development of agriculture and industry. 

NYSAAF fosters a spirit of cooperation among members and a place for the exchanging of ideas on management and problems of general interest, resulting in the continuing improvement of fairs and expositions throughout the state and providing a memorable experience for all fairgoers.

On Tuesday, January 21, it was announced that the New York State Fair would extend its dates to include five additional days. 

There are concerns about local County Fairs dates overlapping, as well as the limitations this may create for those respective agricultural showcases and entertainment packages. At this point, we do not know the impact that this will have on county fairs throughout the state during this transition. Next steps will be determined as we await further information from the New York State Department of Agriculture and the Governor’s Office.
