Escape Artists, Jugglers & Robots Will Amaze at the New York State Fair!
Escape artists, jugglers, and robots...oh my! There's a full lineup of entertainment on the grounds of the New York State Fair this year.
Enjoy lots of fun and surprises at every turn during the 13-day fair in Syracuse, including a mix of new acts and fan favorites.
Lady Houdini has completed the most Water Torture Cell escapes and she'll perform the feat not once but twice each day during the New York State Fair.
Watch as Lady Houdini holds her breath for five minutes underwater while breaking free of obstacles, including padlocks, handcuffs, and leg shackles.
Lady Houdini will perform two shows daily in the Central Park area, located across from the Poultry Barn.
Groovy Guy Collins
“Groovy” Guy Collins, who started juggling on the streets of Paris when he was a teenager, is now an international street performer who has been featured on The Travel Channel.
He juggles, unicycles, and walks on ropes – all while weaving in mischievous magic.
Groovy Guy will perform three times each day August 23 through the 28.
Rock-It The Robot
Rock-It The Robot is back. This 9-foot gentle giant walks, talks, and rocks.
He has a built-in sound system that helps him interact with fairgoers through conversation, song, and dance. Rock-It’s animated face is full of expression, making him seem all the more life-like.
Rock-It will e between The Exposition Center and The Midway every day around 12 PM, 1:45 PM, and 3:45 PM.
Sea Lion Splash Show
The Sea Lion Splash Show is a highlight of the NYS Fair. Californian and South American Sea Lions provide education and entertainment during the 45-minute show.
From selfies, to balancing, handstands, performance tricks and more – these smiling sea stars do it all!
Three shows are scheduled Monday through Friday, with an extra show added on for Saturday and Sunday.
Hollywood Racing Pigs
Ham it up and squeal with delight during the Hollywood Racing Pigs races three times a day.
The Family Fun Zone is the place to be to check out the porky competitors, take in a Circus Show, and stroll through the Petting Zoo.
Fan Favorites Return
Steve Trash, Eco-Magician, Hilby the Skinny German Juggle Boy, Bandaloni the One-Man Band, and the Birds of Prey exhibit all return for a jam-packed list of grounds entertainment.
“The Great New York State Fair provides top-quality entertainment at every turn. From a streetscape perspective, strolling performers and surprises are sprinkled throughout The Fairgrounds, and we tried to stagger shows so that fairgoers can catch as many shows as they want to see,” said Interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey.
