Searching for something exciting to do off-campus? We're taking a trip to The Great New York State Fair again this year! Experience the thrills of the rides, concerts, games, and food trucks at one of the longest-running state fairs. 

Tickets and transportation are free for Colgate students.

Trip Sign-up and Confirmation

  • The O.S.I. will send out information 5 days beforehand.
  • Students will be approved to travel in the order in which they apply. 
  • Up to 55 students may go on the trip.
  • Signing up does not automatically guarantee you a spot. Signing up means you are interested in the trip and will be notified when we are ready to collect travel paperwork.
  • Returning the paperwork before the deadline and obtaining a confirmed spot means you are committing to attend the trip. 
  • Students who cancel for non-emergency reasons (other than illness, injury, family emergency) before the trip will pay the cost of their ticket/transportation, which is $75.

Departure and Arrival Times

  • The bus will leave Colgate at 5 p.m. from James C. Colgate (outside Donovan's Pub) and arrive at the fairgrounds at 6 p.m.
  • To return, the bus will leave at 11 pm from the New York State Fair and arrive at Colgate at midnight.
