It's the '3 for 4 Challenge' with the New York State Fair. Play along and receive free tickets to the 2021 Fair.

The New York State Fair's food and drink vendors are struggling this year due to COVID-19 and the Fair being cancelled. The new '3 for 4 Challenge' is designed to help the eateries drum up some business while you get free admittance to next year's Fair. It's a win-win.

To play the '3 for 4 Challenge,' you must visit and order from least three of the vendors listed below, and make sure you get your receipts. Upload a clear picture or scan of the receipts dated August 17, 2020, or later, and you'll get four tickets to next year's Fair. You'll also receive one extra ticket for each new place you visit after the initial three.

You don't have to upload them all at once -- just upload them as you get them and we'll keep track. We will NOT make these receipts public or share identifying information with anyone.  [NYS Fair]

On July 6, Governor Cuomo announced that the 2020 Great New York State Fair was being canceled to ensure the health and safety of New Yorkers and all fairgoers. This is the second time in the Fair's long history that it has been necessary to cancel the State Fair: the first was during World War II, and today in 2020, due to the Coronavirus pandemic. In both cases, the cause was just and proper: to protect people.
