State narrows fair themes to 10 finalists


A contest to decide the 2013 theme for the New York State Fair has been whittled down to 10 finalists by the Department of Agriculture and Markets, which received more than 500 suggestions from residents.

Voters can choose their favorite by visiting the fair’s Facebook page and clicking on the poll icon on the far right, or by emailing their votes to state

The 10 finalists are: Come Relish in the Riches of NY; Fresh, Fun, Local; Grandeur at its Greatest; Grounds for Discovery; Harvest of an Empire; Harvest the Feeling; Home Grown and World Class; Sharing the Bounty and Pride of NY; We Grow the Best for All the Rest, and Where Culture Meets Agriculture.

The theme will be announced Tuesday.
