GEDDES, N.Y. – Two Central New York food staples will be missing from Chevy Court at the New York State Fair -- Gianelli Sausage and Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.

Gianelli Sausage posted the following, in part, to its website Wednesday:

“For the past 41 years, Gianelli Sausage has had the privilege of serving countless Fairgoers during the annual New York State Fair and for 21 of those amazing years, Gianelli featuring the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que was proud to anchor Chevy Court. It is with sincere sadness that we share with you the difficult decision to end our participation in the Great New York State Fair.”

The two cited the pandemic as their reason for opting out of the fair, saying “We believe our focus and attention must remain with our core businesses.”

The statement ended with a sense of finality, reading “We hang up our aprons with heavy hearts but also with many, many fond memories and most importantly a tremendous sense of gratitude to all the people who supported us over the years. It has indeed been a wonderful run.”
