Due to COVID-19 The Great New York State Fair has been cancelled for 2020.
Whatever you're looking for, Syracuse is a winner when it comes to sports. Matter of fact, Sporting News called us the "Eighth-Best Sporting City in America" without a major professional sports team!
Our first-class sports facilities attract national, regional and statewide amateur athletic events - with venues diverse and flexible enough to accommodate anything from bowling to inline skating to synchronized swimming. And spectator capacities from small groups to huge crowds. Even better, four distinct seasons lend themselves to baseball, biathlon, lacrosse, skiing and soccer.
Before and after the competition, Syracuse offers you plenty to see and do - so bring your family along for a mini-vacation! Start by exploring urban amenities like top-notch restaurants, shopping, cultural events and historic architecture, all conveniently located in downtown Syracuse. Take a short drive east to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Head west to the Finger Lakes wine country or Niagara Falls. For help in discovering all the other exciting points of interest in our community, talk with the Syracuse Convention and Visitors Bureau.
When it comes to helping you schedule, coordinate, or run your sporting event - Visit Syracuse specialists are real pros. We have a game plan to make your event a winner; we will help you with bids, logistics and housing; and you can rely on us to assist with volunteers, promotions, registration and community information. Additional support is also available from Syracuse Sports Corporation - our team dedicated to promoting our region's numerous sporting assets.
