DEPT. OF AGRICULTURE & MARKETS ANNOUNCES WADE SHOWS SELECTED AS NEW OPERATOR OF MIDWAY AT THE NY STATE FAIR
“Showcase NY” Themed Foods, Rides, Games and Amenities to be Spotlighted on the Midway this Year and for Years to Come
March 14, 2014
Acting State Agriculture Commissioner Richard A. Ball today announced that Wade Shows of Livonia, Michigan has been selected as the newest operator of the Midway at the Great New York State Fair. Wade was selected after an extensive Request for Proposals (RFP) process that began in the summer of 2013. Wade takes over operations of the Midway from James E. Strates Shows of Orlando, Florida.
“We couldn’t be more excited about the new rides and attractions that Wade Shows will bring to the Midway of the Great New York State Fair this year,” Acting Commissioner Ball said. “The theme of this year’s Fair is ‘Summer’s Best in Show’ and we are clearly starting off on the right foot. Over the years, this company has gained a deserved reputation for increasing both revenue and attendance at agricultural fairs, while providing a superior entertainment product for Fairgoers. We greatly look forward to this new era at the Fair, which we believe will be exciting for the thousands of visitors who come to this mecca of upstate tourism every year.”
