9 Ways the Richmond County Fair has expanded this year!
YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS IT
1) NEW LOWER PRICES!
The Fair is dropping prices drastically! Adults are now $10.00 and Kids tickets are only $5.00! Unlimited Rides tickets are now sold separately, giving you the ability to pick and choose how you spend your Fair! Purchase an Unlimited Ride Band ($15.00) to ride all day long or purchase a few ride tickets to spread out your day. Customize your own experience!
2) STATEN ISLAND’S ART & CULTURE ALL IN ONE PLACE!
We’re celebrating Staten Island’s rich community for the 40th Anniversary by inviting all Staten Island favorites to join in. Where else can you see all Staten Island culturals in one place alongside artists and performances all weekend?
Featured arts and culture: Internationally known graffiti artists “Robots Will Kill” will be doing live art, NYC Arts Cypher will be doing live art demos and WeJustWorkin, Vito Picone, and DJ’s from MakerPark Radio will all be performing.
3) MORE MUSIC THAN EVER BEFORE!
This year 4 music stages will be spread throughout the fair! All music will be appreciated from rock to R&B and country to hip-hop! Check out the line-up here to plan your day!
4) WIN PRIZES AND FAME IN CONTESTS FOR ALL AGES!
Ever wonder how many hot dogs you can eat in a minute? Or see your friends stuff their face into a pie? There are contests all weekend that will test your skills! Kids can participate in water balloon tosses and potato sack races while adults see how many of the spiciest wings Buffalo Wild Wings has to offer they can eat! Winners will be announced in the Staten Island Advance and will receive a trophy to brag about all year long.
5) THE FOOD IS TO DIE FOR!
In addition to everyone's fair favorites like fried oreos and extra large lemonade, visit local restaurant staples like Sophia’s Taqueria, Twisted Steaks, Latin Bites and more! There are so many types of food, you’ll probably want to try them all! Just wait a few minutes before you try the free Bounce House and Joust.
6) DON’T FEEL LIKE WALKING?
Need a rest from all the fair has to offer? Take a ride on Spectrum’s Trolley for transportation throughout the park! Or take a nice air-conditioned break in the Everything Goes Lounge: A courtroom transformed into an antique filled living room where you can take anything you see home with you!
7) LIMITED EDITION MERCHANDISE
The 40th anniversary Fair will feature new Historic Richmond Town Fair swag with limited availability. Richmond County Fair shirts, hats, tote bags, you name it! You’ll want to get your hands on these once in a life-time items before it’s too late!
8) YOU WON'T BELIEVE YOUR EYES!
We’ve restructured the entertainment this year to make the impossible happen! A Jury Chamber transformed into an Escape Room, an aerialist above your head, axe throwing inside a barn foundation, horses circling a house from 1868, we’ve pulled out all the stops for this special weekend!
9) IT’S OUR 40TH BIRTHDAY!
The Richmond County Fair has been Staten Island’s county fair for 40 years. We wanted to throw the biggest celebration possible and reflect the wonderful things this Island has to offer. We have a new exhibition showing the 100+ year old fun history of the Fair - so come celebrate with us!
