New York State Fair Ticket Giveaway

The best way to cap off the end of summer is by taking a trip over to the New York State Fair!  We went last year for the first time and it was pretty impressive to say the least.  There were tons of exhibits spread over 375 acres.  By the end of the day, we were all envious of Colt riding in his stroller!


The first New York State Fair kicked off in September 1841 and was held in Syracuse.  From 1842 until 1889 the Fair traveled to 11 different cities: Albany, Auburn, Buffalo, Elmira, New York City, Poughkeepsie, Rochester, Saratoga Springs, Syracuse, Utica and Watertown.  

Today the Fair is held in Syracuse and is a great reflection of all things New York.  There are tons of agriculture exhibits, children's talent competitions, animal shows, signature State Fair food (yum!) and a huge list of musical entertainment acts scheduled to perform.

The fair opens Thursday, August 22 and runs until Monday, September 2.  Regular one day ticket admission runs $10 but you have a chance to go to the Fair free!  

The New York State Fair is graciously giving away two (2) general admission tickets, one (1) parking pass and a Best Bets Bargain Book, containing more than $3,000 in coupons and discounts.

There are a few ways to win...each are worth one entry and the more entries you have increase your odds of winning in the random drawing. Winners will be notified by email and announced on the blog! Contest ends 8/22 at 11:59 EST. Here's how to enter:

  11. The NY State Fair is where this 60 year old becomes a kid again. I gawk at the rides, exhibits, and animals. I eat fried anything. I have a daily of guilty indulgences and feel young! Thanks for the chance to win tickets to the Great NY State Fair!
