Bringing the Wild to the NYS Fair

Syracuse- Come one, come all, where man and nature will meet face-to-face at the Great New York State Fair! We are excited to announce that Hawk Creek will have the unique opportunity to bring the wild to the NYS Fair this year! The fair runs August 23rd -September 3rd daily, from 10:00am-6:00pm (gates open at 8:00am). Come and see these majestic birds of prey during fair hours and don’t miss the flying bird show free with fair admission!

Hawk Creek is thrilled to introduce a new crowd to our amazing animal ambassadors from around the world, as we share their stories and lessons they have to teach. With a wide variety of wildlife on hand, Hawk Creek looks forward to showing these exquisite predators up-close and personal. Photographs are a must! Snap a picture of a majestic Eagle or the powerful Owl! Maybe you’ll get that perfect shot of the Turkey Vulture in mid flight at our flying bird show!

Fair parking is $5 per vehicle. Daily admission tickets are $10 per person, ages 12 and under are free. This event is rain or shine. For more information on parking and driving directions please visit
