seating chart:   http://www.ticketmaster.com/seatingchart/169/13436

Sure doesn't appear to be gen. admin.  There is a smaller stage for music on the other side of the fair called the Chevrolet Court and that is general admission... actually, those shows are free with your fair ticker purchase as the stage is housed right in the middle of fried dough and sausage stands.  They get newer and older acts that don't sell big yet, or anymore.


Oh and I think I read somewhere that our tickets to the show also double as fair admission which is usually $10 there.  Parking will cost but no more than $10.

For the fair itself, don't miss the dairy barn with $.25 cups of milk, the best shakes ever and the butter sculpture!  There is also a wine court complete with tasting.  Everything else is your standard ordinary fair attractions.

Yeah.
But the lines are tremendous for the milk.  Worth every second of the wait, even if the cups are small and you're only allowed 2 at a time (and the strange ticket system).  Also the greatest Ice Cream I've ever had is also in that building (more expensive, and also with a strange ticket system).  But it's a fair, the food has to be great.  Haven't tried Wine court.  Last year I was busy with other things at the Fair, and before I was under 21.

I saw ELO at the free stage about 10 years ago, good concert too, especially for a free one (I think ELO is under rated).  Usually the acts there play twice a day (or they have 2 separate ones).
Also seems like Charlie Daniels plays it every year. The guy I work with and I joke about it every time we hear the name..."It's not the Fair yet.".  

The tickets do double as general admission Fair tickets (which are $10 at the gate, cheaper if pre-ordered or other fancy things), and there many places around that bus people in to the fair, they run about a dollar each way.  I'm not sure how late they run.  I usually do that since Fair traffic is complete hell (they put a stop light on the highway).  But that;'s only really for through traffic, since the Fair exits are on separate sides of the light.

All this stuff I picked up by living so close my whole life and proximity brings quantity, I've gone every year since 1998, when they closed it the last day due to a storm.  Nothing else to do around here at the end of summer.

This is the first year in a while that I'm looking forward to the Fair.


I haven't been to Beaver Lake in a long time.  I should go soon, I always enjoyed it (except for that one time when I was sick)

Not malk?  Oh, what a relief!  I know it contains Vitamin R, but malk isn't nearly as good for you as milk.

Perhaps the guys will try the milk at the New York State Fair in Syracuse when they play there, and will later sing the praises of the milk in the same way they sang the praises of soup.  

Either way, I think we need to let Geddyfan13 know about this latest Rush-and-milk development.   yes.gif   You know, it's been a whole year since we last heard from our milk-loving friend.

I thought the Vitamin R was what made it taste so good.
the quest continues to find out why the milk is so good.

I've made some jokes about the milk, but I confess a milkshake sounds wonderful.  I'll probably get one.

I stand corrected!


There is a presale, JUST saw on RIAB.


I got TRACK C, Row 11, seat 1 and 2 (one for the Fi).



Anyone been here before know if that's track on the ground?  It was all I was pulling up...  I know it's not under cover and maybe not the best to see the show but it's ok.

Hi all, it's the poster known as Red Sector animal....
I'm usually making some wierd post, or just babbling to myself on here.

I'll be going to the concert alone or possibly with a rush buddy of mine.

I wouldn't mind meeting up with any regulars here.  

Anyone who want's to chill before the show is cool by me.
I'm certain I'll be able to share a soup or salad mix.
I'll have rush jammin on the stereo.
If you have a chill area thats cool.
Not sure how you'll find me, but I look forward to meeting anyone on this board.

You'll have to walk through the fair to get to the venue, but it's not that bad.  Parking, from when I've been, has been pretty orderly.


Traffic around the fair can get snarly.  690 can get busy especially.


If you're coming in from Buff, there are buses from Auburn and Elbridge that go to the fair.  How frequent, I don't know, but you don't have to worry about traffic and parking if that's a big thing for you.  


I've never seen a show here so I can't comment on GS seating.
