New Corporate Outings Program Launches This Year

The Fair Invites You and Your Company to Celebrate Special Occasions with a Memorable Day at The Fair


The Great New York State Fair’s new Corporate Outings Program has officially launched, inviting companies to celebrate their special occasions with a memorable day at the Fair.  Whether organizing a family-friendly summer picnic, celebrating a milestone, or looking for a fun way to enhance employee team building, companies can leave the planning to State Fair event hosts and enjoy all that the Fair has to offer in 2024.

The Corporate Outings program provides guests with a $1,000 credit to be used for admission and parking. In addition, they will have exclusive access to more than 5,000 square feet of premier event space at The Exposition Center, The Fair’s newest and largest venue. The dedicated space will be available to guests for the entire day, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., providing a private location for employees to gather for meals, meetings, celebrations, and more. It also includes access for employees to enjoy the unique exhibits in The Expo Center one hour before the building opens to fairgoers.

Packages can be tailored to the company’s requests and offer additional options for food and/or catering as well as Midway ride tickets.

State Fair Interim Director Julie LaFave said, “We’re excited to kick off our Corporate Outings Program and bring a really unique experience to larger groups.  We’ve got an awesome team here that will take care of all the planning, so all you have to do is enjoy The Fair’s many options for great food, top-notch entertainment, and family-fun and prepare to make great memories at The Great New York State Fair this summer.”
