Maple Day

In celebration of New York’s growing maple industry, the New York State Fair will hold Maple Day and is sponsored by the New York State Maple Producers Association. This day will feature maple products, such as maple cotton candy, maple donuts, pancakes with maple syrup, and more, that can be sampled at locations across the Fairgrounds. Cooking demonstrations using pure New York maple syrup will be held throughout the day in the Wegmans Demonstration Kitchen and maple vendors will be sampling and selling products at the Taste NY Marketplace in the Horticulture Building.
