SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The 32nd annual New York Farm Show will be held on February 23 – 25, 2017 at the NYS fairgrounds in Syracuse. The Northeast’s premier indoor farm show is packed with new and practical equipment, services and products just right for your farming operation. Over 400 exhibitors covering more than 230,000 sq. ft. will be waiting for you. Show hours 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily.
“The parking is new and has improved,” said Scott Grigor, New York Farm Show Manager. “Last year we faced many challenges with parking because of the construction project at the fairgrounds and visitors had to park in the distant parking lots. Not this year, with phase one of the projects complete there will be more parking and closer to the buildings. I appreciate and thank our visitors last year for their patience and understanding. Parking will remain free and bus shuttles will be available.” Grigor added.
This year’s show features the latest technologies and equipment in the agricultural industry. Visitors can shop, compare and buy the latest practices and efficiencies. Visit our website (www.newyorkfarmshow.com) to see a full list of our over 400 exhibitors, new products, directions to the show and much more.
Many organizations will be offering workshops and presentations including the beef industry; Forest Management workshops and Agricultural Safety Program workshops will be available throughout the show. “These organizations have dedicated a lot of time and effort to provide high quality programs for the show visitors,” said Grigor.
The Robert Watson Memorial Toy Auction on February 24 at 5:00 p.m. will be in the Empire Room of the Arts and Homes Building. Nearly 200 Farm Toys will be sold to the highest bidder and all proceeds to benefit the New York FFA.
Visitors can view and purchase farm toys at the toy show in the Art & Homes building.
“It’s the premier indoor farm show in the northeast and an opportunity to showcase the agricultural industry.” Grigor added.
