The Great New York State Fair Launches First-Ever “Fair Food Four Pack” Sale

With Just Over 100 Days until Opening Day at the Fair, Special Promotion Highlights Some of the Most Popular Food and Drinks Found at the Fair

The Great New York State Fair today announced the launch of the first-ever “Fair Food Four Pack” sale.  With just over 100 days until opening day at the Fair, this special promotion highlights some of the Fair’s most popular food and drinks while providing fairgoers who love eating at the Great New York State Fair a chance to save money on some of their favorite items.  The Fair “Fair Food Four Pack” sale starts at 6 a.m. Friday, May 12 via the Fair’s online ticket seller, etix.com.

The Fair is offering four $5 vouchers, worth $20, that can be redeemed for delicious eats at select Fair restaurants.  The four pack also includes four coupons good for cups of perfectly chilled white or chocolate milk at the Milk Bar in the Dairy Products Building and four coupons good for $1 baked potatoes with all the toppings at the Fair’s signature Great Potato Booth in the Horticulture Building.  The package’s value is $25 and will be sold for $15, plus credit card and etix fees of 34 cents per four pack.  There are only 3,000 four packs available, with a limit of two four packs per customer.

“The number one reason people give us for coming to the Fair is to enjoy the food.  This new sale celebrates that and helps make some of the Fair favorites more affordable for people.  With just over 100 days to go to opening day and excitement building for the 2017 Great New York State Fair, I think these four packs will go quickly, so I wouldn’t wait to buy one,” said Troy Waffner, Acting Fair Director.

Four packs are only available online, at https://www.etix.com/ticket/p/3010817/fair-food-four-pack-syracuse-new-york-state-fair.  Buyers will receive a voucher that they can print at home.  Buyers then bring the voucher to the new Guest Relations center inside the Main Gate to receive their food, milk and potato coupons.
