In New York State, our competitive spirit is a big part of who we are – and few places is it more evident than at the Fair. Each year, thousands of participants cater to their competitive side by entering in competitions spanning a full range of categories including arts and crafts, cooking, cattle, agriculture and more. From plus-sized produce to blue-ribbon rabbits to antique automobiles, the Fair hosts competitions for nearly every interest and age group.
