The Conservation Building is staple at our Fair, it has been a staple for a VERY long time! Our Fair guests look forward to coming this building each year. The Erie County Fair, out of dedication to this building has created a committee of like-minded people who are passionate about outdoor education, that want to see the building flourish.
Our mission is to increase educational opportunities with hands-on, kid friendly, staffed exhibits that are engaging for the fair guest.
The committee has rebranded the building which will now be the Environment & Sportsmen Building.
With the rebrand we have some exciting new things happening. We have added a Jerky Competition which will be on display during the Fair in the Environment & Sportsmen building and will be judged in the Erie County Fair Cooks Kitchen. We are working with NYS Parks on the added Kids Camp which will take place Friday, August 14, Saturday August 15 and Sunday August 16. Each day will target a different age group of kids. The kids will spend an hour with a NYS Park Naturalist and will leave with the materials to complete to earn a patch.
On the last weekend of the Fair, Minnesota author, Kevin Lovegreen will be introducing “Lucky Luke,” to fair-goers in the Environment and Sportsmen building. Kevin enjoys inspiring kids to enjoy the outdoors through his amazing hunting and fishing adventures he shares through “Lucky Luke’s Hunting Adventures.”Kevin will bring a unique perspective into the building and engage fair-goers through storytelling and game calling.
