About the Venue

Thousands of Spaces for the Biggest Events

The Fairgrounds boasts four large parking lots capable of parking nearly 14,000 vehicles. In addition, open spaces within the Fairgrounds can be used for parking. Promoters can offer parking for free or charge for parking. The Fair can provide shuttle bus service to move your customers from their cars to your show.

The Fair’s Orange Lot, our largest lot, was recently renovated with paving, lighting, signage and drainage. A new exit from the lot ties directly onto Interstate 690.

The Fairgrounds has dozens of acres of open space available for open-air or tented events. The 60-acre paved Midway is available for such events, as are the Fair’s parking lots.

Please note that the map shows lots that are only in use during the Great New York State Fair. The lots available outside of the Fair are the Orange, Brown, Pink and Gray lots, with parking space available on open areas of the Fairgrounds.
