The theme for the 2013 Great New York State Fair is Sharing the Bounty and Pride of NY, the state Department of Agriculture and Markets announced Tuesday. The theme was chosen among a list of 10 finalists from over 500 entries in the annual contest.
Contest guidelines said submitted themes should highlight the states economic, cultural and institutional strengths. Syracuse resident Kathy Denman submitted this years theme, which will be the basis of a marketing campaign to promote the summer event.
The fair will run from Aug. 22 through Sept. 2.
