We hope everyone that shared another great Erie County Fair enjoyed the many traditional events and newly created fair experiences. Our fair attracts more than a million guests annually that come from around the region. As a county fair we are proud to say that we are a destination and the only county fair in the country which is known as the must-see summer event. Our fair is all about seeking out and showcasing the finest concessions, horse and livestock shows along with handicraft and various competitions

On behalf of the Erie County Fair Concession Department, a big Thank You to everyone who participated with us as we celebrated a successful 2017 Fair. The 178th edition of the greatest county fair concluded with the second highest attendance number in our long history. Our final turnout rocketed us back to the million mark ending at a strong 1,193,279.

Thanks go to all of our vendors and concessionaires. We would like to especially recognize those whom participated in such aspects as our Fair Camp, Couponing, The Taste of the Fair, New Foods Showdown, Livestock Auctions, Eating Contests and WNY Largest summer Food Drive.
