Took our grandkids (and their parents) to the Fair and was pleasantly surprised at how it has changed over the years. The best thing is it has all paved walkways, new animal barns and lots of new attractions. The food is always a draw ! The Fair Grounds are used throughout the year, with many Expos and such. They even... More

Lots of food vendors and rides to choose from. We toured the livestock barns and found a place that they have pig races. We wanted to see them because they looked funny but we were starving. So we went to get some ribbon potato chips. This was a first for us and they were delicious. Lots of fun. Reportedly the... More

Beware of this show. I bought a ring from Crystal Connections at this show in the Fall, 2014. In May, 2015, I lost a diamond. Neither the business nor the promotors would make the ring right. I went to a wonderful show in Syracuse today and found an excellent dealer that repaired my ring. Bottom line is Crystal Connections do... More

The Showplex at the Hamburg Fairgrounds is a place we never expected to be built. My whole life most of the horse shows in Western NY where outside. In the rain and mud very often. Then 6 years ago the idea of a new indoor show facility can to be. A dream that thrills the horse world here in Western... More
