Senior Days at NYS Fair: August 27 and 28, 2018

The Great New York State Fair is once again offering free admission to older adults on two special days. Attendees aged 60 and older are offered free admission on Monday, August 27 and Tuesday, August 28. ID showing date of birth may be requested to allow free admittance.

Lots to see, new and improved!
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the opening of the new Expo Center at the Fair this week, and the fairgrounds are undergoing constant improvements and they need to be seen to be truly appreciated.

New reception area
There is a new reception area for senior group bus and van parking, and a special parking permit for this location will be required. Please contact the fair’s Art & Home Center office at (315) 487-7711, ext. 1265 to pre-register for this permit.

Tram for transportation
Fairgoers are able to make use of the fair’s internal tram network for free on the two senior days, with the service running from 9am to 8pm. These trams travel around the perimeter road, making 11 scheduled stops.
