Entertainment Application

Each and every year the Erie County Fair welcomes more than a million guests through its gates and promises a day full of agriculture, food, rides, games, and entertainment. To provide a variety of entertainment to our guests the Fair welcomes a variety of acts, dance groups, bands, and vocalists to perform throughout the Fairgrounds. 

The Entertainment Department is seeking performers to fill the 2017 Erie County Fair lineup. This application allows performers to get all the information the Fair needs in a concise and simple way.

Applications will be accepted through May 1, 2017. Applications are used only to gather information about potential entertainers and the completion of an application in no way guarantees a performance spot at the Erie County Fair. 

Scheduling of acts will continue through July 2017, however, regret letters will not be sent. The contact person below will be contacted if you are selected to perform. 


  1. The 2017 Erie County Fair takes place August 9-20. Please prepare to be flexible with your schedule in the event you are selected to perform. 
  2. All acts must be "G" Rated and family friendly
  3. The Erie County Fair serves as an excellent venue for exposure to guests from throughout WNY. Please remember that these performances are offered to provide exposure and experience rather than financial gain.
