The Great New York State Fair is getting greater. 5 days are being added if Governor Cuomo gets his way.

The Governor announced the 5 day extension during his budget presentation. $4.9 million will be added to cover the 18 day fair that will include new programming, an extra weekend, a motor show in the Expo Center and sensory friendly days.

The extension still needs to be approved by the New York Legislature but it seems like a fore gone conclusion. The New York State fair posted the new fair dates on Facebook.

The 2020 New York State fair is expected to start sooner, running August 21 - September 7.
