Sponsors & Opportunities

 The Erie County Fair “Our mission… to accommodate appropriate aspects of the agricultural, entertainment and recreational needs of Western New York.”

We welcome the opportunity to discuss the 2017 Erie County Fair with you. 

The Erie County Fair surpasses many State Fairs in attendance with just a twelve day run. In those days more than one million people from throughout Western New York come to the Fairgrounds for a day filled with entertainment, agriculture, excitement, and so much more.

The Fair has become more than an annual excursion for families in the area, it has become a summertime staple. There are countless stories of the special place the Erie County Fair holds in the hearts of its guests. First dates, overcoming a fear of heights, holding a chicken, or eating alligator are just some of the memories that come from every corner of Erie County and beyond.

From its roots as a traditional agricultural county fair, the Erie County Fair has grown to feature a half million dollars in free entertainment, rows of shopping vendors, foods that range from the classic to the wild, and thousands of events from livestock shows to demonstrations and competitions.
