Rides

This year, the Erie County Fair and James E. Strates Shows celebrate their 100-year partnership. This exclusive partnership is a historic milestone in the modern amusement industry as it is considered the longest continuous run of any one carnival midway and any one fair in the United States.

Strates Shows provides over 100 rides, games and vendors on the midway each August during the Best 12 Days of Summer in Hamburg, NY.

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