The State Fair Interim Director says:
Any gardener - master or amateur – or floral artist may enter any of the competitions. “As the old adage goes, ‘April showers bring May flowers’ and we can’t wait to see those flowers – and other floral delights – back at the Great New York State Fair this summer,” said Interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey. “So many people, of all ages and backgrounds, have fond memories of walking through the Horticulture Building, literally stopping to smell the roses and an array of other beautiful scents. As we continue to bounce back from the pandemic and plan the 2023 Fair, it’s encouraging to see this sign–a return to normalcy–sprouting up. We are incredibly thankful to our dedicated volunteers, like Fred Miller, for bringing this treasured tradition back to life.”
