I enjoyed my night at the raceway and they've made improvements since I was there years ago. The racing is competitive and I like to bet that track from my computer 350 miles away! The food is very expensive so eat before you go there. 2 hotdogs and fries without a drink cost $16! My brother bought a Sprite and... More

We go to the Fairgrounds all year long. There is a variety of shows, exhibits, the Fair, holiday lights, the casino, etc. Parking is plentiful and usually free (except the Fair)..The buildings and facilities are clean and well-lit. Our next trip there will be March 22-23 for the Buffalo Geological Society's annual Gem Mineral Fossil Show. This year the theme... More

this is a big, sprawling acreage which plays host to a Fair in August, about two weeks long, and numerous other events, notably big train shows in its "events center" in November and February.... once, fearing its own heritage, it changed its name to "America's Fair," but has finally decided Erie County wasn't that bad after all... but as Fair's...

I was a vendor at the bi-annual Train Show at the Hamburg Fairground. It's clean, modern with plenty of parking

The fair was good...enjoyed the variety of things to do there. Some shopping in the Antique Store was nice. What I did find disturbing was the birth of a dairy calf while there. Everyone loved it.. the mom was so happy but what they don't tell you is the calf will be taken away and she will be put back... More

My Significant Other has been telling me about how terrific this event has been for the past 6 years. We decided to take it in this year and we will be returning every year. It's more than I could have imagined. Ok so there were Cattle, Pigs, Sheep, Goats..etc but there was so much more. It's too bad that in... More

In addition to the fair, the Fairgrounds host the Festival of Lights in winter. The cost is actually sort of pricey and there isn't too much to do for older kids (we went with 2 nine year olds and 1 eleven year old). It is the biggest one around though, so it wouldn't keep me from going again. But be... More

We go to the casino at the Fairgrounds. I like it because it is smoke free and I can sit at a machine and not have to move because someone is smoking.
