James E Strates Midway

Kids on a ride

The James E. Strates Midway returns to the Erie County Fair in 2022 for its 97th year!
For generations, the annual arrival of the James E. Strates Shows train has been a highly anticipated event for fairgoers and enthusiasts of Americana. This past year’s pandemic has had a significant impact on many long-time family traditions – and the Strates Show arrival by train can be added to that list.

The Strates Shows midway features rides, games, sideshows, concessions, and shopping.


Stay safe and have fun on the midway!
