State Fair Meadowlands returns on June 22 with 17 days of rides, games, kid-friendly activities, shows, and food. This year’s fair, located next to the Met Life Stadium on Route 3 in East Rutherford, features new attractions such as a Live Shark Encounter and new foods like alligator on a stick and fried peanut butter and jelly.
The fair boasts more than 150 rides and attractions on over 35 acres of fairgrounds.
Appealing across generations
“Everyone goes to the fair,” said Michele Tartaglione, managing director. She has produced the fair since 2003. She said that the fair appeals to families, teenagers, seniors, and has recently appealed to individuals in their twenties – an unusual trend for the fair
“When I was 20 you didn’t go to a fair and you didn’t dress up for Halloween, but now young people are doing the things [they did] when they were young,” she said.
Tartaglione expects 400,000 people to attend this year if there is good weather, based on admission numbers from previous years.
