The second phase of the New York State Fair redevelopment project has begun, and, as part of the fair’s redesign and transformation, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced the event will include an extra day, expanding to 13 days in 2017.

There will also be a new Aerial Sky Ride added to the fair this year, along with other new events and attractions.
“By re-imagining one of New York’s cialis online australia historic and beloved traditions, the first phase of our revitalization has already transformed the New York State Fair experience, strengthening a prized tourism destination in Central New York, and generating record-breaking attendance in 2016,” Gov. Cuomo stated. “I look forward to continuing the state fair’s momentum with phase two, and the additional $70 million in investments to get it done. I thank the task force members for their quick work, and smart recommendations for this next phase. The new state fair will bring exciting shows, artisans, concerts, and local food and beverages to visitors from across the state and the nation, year-round for generations to come.”
