2019 Pan-African Village at the New York State Fair: Entertainment, Food, Culture and Crafts


Van Robinson Pan African Village Entertainment schedule for the 2019 State Fair and 2019 pictures.

Located between the Center of Progress Building and the Art and Home Center, you can come of the Pan-African Village to learn about New York’s African-American history while you listen to music with African roots, taste African and Caribbean inspired food in the food court sponsored by Total Care, sip southern-style lemonade and browse booths filled with ethnic items.

Many changes have come to the area including a new Fair entrance from the Solvay bridge overlooking the fairgrounds.  Operated by the Syracuse/Onondaga County NAACP and a committee of representative local vendors. Recently rebranded, the Van Robinson Pan African Village after former NAACP President Van Robinson. Linda Brown-Robinson is the organizations current President.
