New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Monday (April 26) the New York State Fair will return in August. The fair was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19.
Cuomo said the fair will run from August 20 to September 6 at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse and operate at approximately 50% capacity. It will be split up into four separate areas to deal with capacity and crowd size.
The four areas will be:
- Food and beverage
- Amusement and rides
- The concert venue will follow NYS concert guidance.
The governor said the current guidelines that have been announced could be revised by August based on COVID-19 positivity and vaccination rates.
