TOP ENTERTAINMENT TO PERFORM AT WINTER FAIR 2020

Some of Upstate New York's top entertainers, including a staple of the Great New York State Fair, will be on stage at the Winter Fair, February 7-9 in the Expo Center on the New York State Fairgrounds. The summer State Fair's most popular performer, Hilby the Skinny German Juggle Boy, will be back, this time for 2 days at 2:05 p.m. Saturday, February 8 and at 2:45 p.m. Sunday, February 9. His comedy juggling act is one of 17 performances which ranges from pop, rock, soul and country music to Gospel and Native American dancing.

"We're bringing the best of the State Fair indoors and our performance lineup reflects that.
