State Fair Meadowlands Fairgrounds is located in the heart of the Tri-State Area just minutes from Manhattan in the community known as The Meadowlands.
The Meadowlands region showcases some of the state’s best known destinations – such as the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Liberty State Park and professional horse racing at the Meadowlands Racetrack. There are great shopping bargains at the New Meadowlands Market – every Saturday; as well as nearby shopping outlets featuring tax-free clothing.
For the nature lover, the Meadowlands, right across from Manhattan, is home to acres of trails, estuaries, and protected marshlands containing the east coast’s 2nd largest bird sanctuary with a variety of outstanding eco-tourism activities.
State Fair Meadowlands is the perfect day trip from NYC and South Jersey or an overnight trip to make time exploring all this area has to offer.
All Meadowlands’ hotels are within 12 miles of New York City at a fraction of the cost of midtown hotels. The Meadowlands is accessible by car from the Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, George Washington Bridge, the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike (Exit 16W exits into the Sports Complex and Fair). There is also a fully integrated public transportation system of trains, ferries, and bus routes.
