Every year, over 800,000 guests walk through the entrance gates of the Great New York State Fair in Syracuse. They come to gaze in amazement at the massive butter sculpture, listen to talented musical artists from across the globe, feel the excitement of rides, and smell the fresh scent of livestock that will be judged, raced, or otherwise raised to help support New York’s economy.
SUNY is committed to helping educate New Yorkers so that we may all grow and prosper together. To help further this mission, SUNY is again “attending” The Great New York State Fair! SUNY campuses will be showcased throughout the week to help teams of SUNY representatives educate and assist New Yorkers with their education goals. Some specific campuses, like SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and SUNY Cobleskill, host larger exhibits every year in order to best tell their story to fair attendees.
So, with so much going on and even more to discover, we have put together Eight Great Reasons to Attend The Great New York State Fair!
