DMV and NYS Fair announce contest to win lifetime pass to the fair
New York — The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the New York State Fair are partnering up to give away one free lifetime pass to the State Fair for one lucky person who orders a custom New York State Fair license plate.
Anyone who orders one of the plates during the Fair’s run from August 20 to September 6, 2021, will be entered to win. Attendance at this year’s Fair is not required to be eligible.
“We are proud to offer the New York State Fair plate and excited about giving customers a chance to win a lifetime pass to the fair,” said DMV Commissioner Mark Schroeder. “The Fair started 180 years ago, long before we were driving motor vehicles, and it has continued to grow and thrive well into the 21st century. We are fortunate to be part of this great New York tradition and to have the opportunity to give our customers another option to engage with the DMV.”
Troy Waffner, Fair Director, said, “One of the great things about the Fair is that it gives New Yorkers a chance to be face-to-face with the state agencies that serve them. I urge all fairgoers to take a moment to visit DMV and other agencies to get their questions answered and services in place. And get your State Fair license plate — you might become a Fair fan for life, and I love seeing them when I’m driving!”
The cost for the NYS Fair plate is $43.75 for an assigned plate number, $75.00 for a customized plate number. The NYS Fair plate can be ordered at the DMV’S mobile office at the fairgrounds or ordered on the DMV website, which officials say is faster and easier than ordering by phone, mail, or in an office. Customers must order within the Fair’s running dates for a chance to win.
DMV will offer select services at the fairgrounds via a mobile office in the Center of Progress Building from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on all days except Labor Day. On Labor Day, the Fair ends at 9 p.m.
