Call for entries for NY State Fair

The deadline for entries for the Great New York State Fair is next Tuesday for arts and crafts and poetry categories. The Fair has dozens of competitions and last year organizers report more than 2,000 people entered at least one of them, from livestock to Christmas trees and from amateur wine to jams and jellies. The Fair in Syracuse this year runs from August 25th to September 5th. Detailed information about entries and forms are available on the New York State Fair website, nysfair.ny.gov and look for competitions.
