TOP ENTERTAINMENT TO TAKE THE STAGE AT WINTER FAIR 2019

Some of Upstate New York's top entertainers, including a staple of the Great New York State Fair, will take the stage at the New York State Winter Fair, February 8-10 in the new Exposition Center at the New York State Fairgrounds.

The summer State Fair's most popular performer, Hilby the Skinny German Juggle Boy, will make his first-ever mid-winter stop at the Fairgrounds at 2:20 p.m. Saturday, February 9. His comedy juggling act is one of 17 performances scheduled for the stage, which ranges from pop, rock, soul and country music to African marimba rhythms and Native American dancing.

"We're bringing the best of the State Fair indoors and our performance lineup reflects that. We've got many great shows that people have enjoyed at the Fair at the end of summer and a few new shows as well," said Steve Becker of Premier Promotions, the company that is operating Winter Fair with assistance from the Great New York State Fair.
