An essential part of the Fair experience is enjoying all of the free entertainment and tasting all the mouth-watering food and this year’s offerings will not disappoint, with an assortment of delicious food and beverages continuing to be among the Fair’s biggest attractions.

“We’re so happy to be back and took the extra time to make the Fair the safest event in NJ,” State Fair Meadowlands Vice President Al Dorso Jr. said. “This year, we extended the hours and days, with a total of 6 more days to enjoy the Fair. We also continue to have our pulse on the hottest trends in fair entertainment and searched for the hottest acts for our fairgoers.”

This year’s Fair features a robust entertainment lineup including, but not limited to the Jurassic Kingdom and Pirates of the Colombian Caribbean as well as perennial favorites such as Cycle Circus Live, Master Hypnotist Steve Bayner, Magician Jay Mattioli, the beloved Racing Pigs and so much more.
