HITS Entertainment

January 1st - December 31st, 2019

Construction of the state of the art exposition center at the Great New York State Fairgrounds was completed in the summer of 2018 and is the largest facility of its kind between Boston and Cleveland. HITS Entertainment is providing non-fair event marketing, booking and management support for the expo center and all other facilities at the fairgrounds.

The New York State Fairgrounds and HITS Entertainment are pleased to accommodate shows and events of all kinds and sizes.

  • Consumer and trade shows can have the run of the place, depending on their size; all of our buildings—more than 500,000 square feet of space—and all of our outdoor spaces are available for the very largest shows and events
  • We have a number of meeting rooms for private or public functions
  • Training sessions may make use of our buildings or wide-open grounds
  • The 200-seat Empire Theater (with classic movie-house pipe organ) is ideal for stage productions
  • Smaller agricultural shows for animals such as rabbits, alpacas or chickens can find a home in one or more of our barns
  • Medium-sized, shows like dog and cat shows, can make use of our large buildings to keep everything in one place
  • Larger animal shows, such as equestrian competitions, can use our barns, outdoor rings, the Toyota Coliseum or the larger Exposition Center
  • Our spacious parking lots are perfect for vehicle-related training or demonstrations
  • Chevy Court and its open audience space can easily accommodate thousands of people and are optimal for music concerts and stage shows
  • The Talent Showcase stage and backstage area (on the western end of the grounds) are suitable for smaller shows
