New parking lot now free of charge at the State Fair

New York State Fair

GEDDES, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Looking to save money on parking at the New York State Fair? You’re in luck!

Fair Director Troy Waffner announced Saturday afternoon that the new Willis Ave. parking lot will be free of charge for the remainder of the Fair.

The lot is adjacent to the Fairgrounds, at the corner of Willis Ave. and State Fair Blvd. Centro shuttle buses run continuously, free of charge, from the lot to Gate 10.

“Utilization of the Willis Ave. lot has been fairly low. We know it takes time for people to change their habits and we want to help shorten the learning curve for our fair goers,” Waffner said.

Waffner says there are approximately 1,800 spaces, which will likely fill up quickly now that they’re free.
