Journey upstate for a weekend full of not-so-urban activities. The annual festival on Syracuse’s sprawling fairgrounds is best known for countrified entertainment like pig racing, cow birthing and displays of intricate butter sculptures, really all fueled by every fried food item you can imagine. Parents will love sampling cheese and wine from local producers while the kids tackle carnival rides. Wander the grounds, play ring toss and dart games and grab tickets to one of many concerts. All ages.
