About Us

Our story and our news.

The New York State Fairgrounds has been located in the town of Geddes, just outside of Syracuse, since 1890. The Fairgrounds features beautiful, historic buildings and a brand new crown jewel, the Exposition Center. This 375-acre campus is the home of horse shows in the Northeast, but it’s also home to the Syracuse Nationals (the largest classic car show east of the Mississippi River) and two major agricultural shows—New York Farm Show and Dairy Carousel—as well as nearly 200 events that draw more than 800,000 people here each year.

There’s a lot going on, so to keep up with all of it, subscribe to our newsletter and check all of our latest news.
