About:

The 375-acre Fairgrounds complex operates year-round, and annually hosts approximately 300 non-fair events. These range from major entertainment and sporting events to a variety of equestrian competitions, consumer shows and community events and meetings that keep the Fairgrounds teeming with people. Nearly 70 percent of attendees are 35 to 65 years old, making it one of the largest gatherings of baby boomers in the Northeast.

The Fairgrounds is a key player in New York’s equine industry, hosting more than 40 horse events each year, including some of the most prestigious competitions in the Northeast. Each year, over 50 trade and consumer shows brought nearly 300,000 people to the Fairgrounds. The Syracuse Nationals, one of the top five classic car shows in the country, draws nearly 80,000 people to its weekend event at the Fairgrounds. A total of 50 entertainment events ranging from major rock concerts to community theater productions attract over 100,000 people each year.
