See below for some of the best festivals and events that you should take advantage of before it’s time to go back to school!

NYS Fair

The nation’s first and longest-running state fair is back, bigger, and better than ever! And we mean that literally; it’s physically grown thanks to the addition of a brand new exposition center. Thankfully, the fair staples are not going anywhere, so you’ll still find incredible free live music performances across six venues, arts and crafts, fireworks, old cars, live animals, every kind of competition imaginable, and so. much. food. But making it even better is the fact that every year the organizers add new events and attractions. So read on for our roundup of the new stuff coming to this year’s fair.

You already know that the official (and free!) I LOVE NEW YORK mobile app can be your best friend on the road in New York, pointing out attractions, restaurants, and events in the area. But did you know that it also now offers four audio walking tours? Each of the following tours dives into the stories and the secrets of a famous town or city within New York State and will pop up on your screen when you access the mobile app in these areas. The tours can be paused and restarted whenever you’d like so you can take your time exploring the many exciting stops along the way.

No matter what pastimes you’re into, learn why this is the perfect place to visit with kids.
