You may notice something a little different at the New York State Fair this summer.

The largest stage at the fairgrounds is getting a new name. Say goodbye to Chevy Park. The old Experience Stage will now be called Suburban Park.

Suburban Park

Suburban Park features a pond and first come, first serve Adirondack chair seating to provide a casual park-like setting for concerts. It has a different vibe than Chevy Court which is closer to the Main Gate.

“Our team had been brainstorming ways to help differentiate the spaces and names of the main stages at the Fair for the last couple of years,” said Interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey.
