New York State Fair Sets Attendance Record
In 2016, the New York State Fair set an all time attendance record of 1,117,630 patrons through its gates. In 2017, the fair shattered that record with an estimated attendance of over 1.3 million visitors. During the 13 day run, the fair set three daily attendance records including a new record for the largest single-day attendance recorded at the fair.
Other Labor Day weekend State Fairs have yet to finalize their attendance numbers, although, entering their final day, Minnesota and Nebraska were on pace for record years as well.
