The much-anticipated butter sculpture at The Great New York State Fair is set for its grand unveiling on Tuesday morning, a day before the fair officially begins.
Situated at the dairy building, this year’s sculpture is keenly awaited, especially following last year’s tribute to the 50th anniversary of Title IX, highlighting its significance in women’s sports under the theme “refuel greatness.”
This year, 800 pounds of butter, sourced from a Batavia farm, will be crafted into the sculpture. The 13-day fair, taking place from August 23 to Labor Day, September 4, will be held at the fairgrounds located on 581 State Fair Blvd in Syracuse.
For attendees, ticket prices are set at $6, with parking available for $10. Seniors aged 65 and above, along with children 12 and under, can enjoy free entry. Tickets can be procured online or by reaching out to 1-800-514-3849.
