Between 1842 and 1889, the fair traveled to the following ciites: Albany, Auburn, Buffalo, Elmira, New York City, Pougheepsie, Rochester, Saratoga Springs, Syracuse, Utica, and Watertown. Since the year 1890, the New York State Fair has been an annual event in Syracuse, excluding the years 1942- 1947, when the grounds were used as a military base during World War I and no fairs were held.
