The New York State Association of Agricultural Fairs (NYSAAF) represents 52 Agriculture Fairs throughout New York State. The association's objectives are to promote and encourage agriculture, horticulture, and the domestic arts through annual fairs, including material and educational development of agriculture and industry in New York State. NYSAAF fosters a spirit of cooperation among NYSAAF members and a place for the exchanging of ideas on management and problems of general interest, resulting in the continuing improvement of fairs and expositions throughout the state, providing a memorable experience for all of our fairgoers.
On Tuesday, January 21, 2020, it was announced that the New York State Fair would extend its dates to include 5 additional days. Understandably, we are concerned about the local County Fairs with overlapping dates, as well as the limitations this may create for those respective agricultural showcases and entertainment packages, as well as all of County Fairs throughout the State and how it might affect them also. At this point, we do not know the impact that this will have on county fairs throughout the state during this transition. We will be working with all our county fairs to ensure that the communities are not negatively impacted. Next steps will be determined as we await further information from the New York State Department of Agriculture and the Govenor's Office.
