Love the Erie County Fair. So much to do there will never be enough time to do it all. Riding the rides, musical entertainment, hand crafted displays, animals, games, vendors of all kinds, and food galore. It's all there. There are also several parks with grass & trees & picnic areas to relax & unwind in. Fun times!

Pleasently surprised at the size and quality of this fair. Will go back instead of going to the NYS fair in Syracuse.

The polka music and the NYS troopers exhibitions were of interest to us, also the show at the arena, last year we had tickets to see and hear Alabama, please bring back more of the same.

We visited from about 4 hours away to attend the fair and see the Shawn Mendes concert. The fair itself was great and we enjoyed seeing everything. I do wish they gave more information up front regarding the concert such as when gates would open, etc. Overall, we were pleased with the Gusto Grandstand as a concert venue and really... More

We had no problem getting a good parking spot. The people at the booths were very friendly. The variety of the food items was great. We will... More

My husband and I are wny natives, which have moved to Va for the past 18 years. We have returned every year in August, for family, our beloved friends, the fair, & WNY food! I would recommend that everyone spend at the very least 2 full days at the fair focusing on seeing all the shows and then strolling through... More

As my friend works for one of the booths at the fair I decided I must go to see what all the fuss is about, as I am a visitor and have only ever been to one other All-American county fair (Eden corn fest) I didn't really know what to expect and most of my pre-judgements were based on old... More

A large fair with something for everyone. A lot of things to do, typical rides and carnival games of chance. There are craft exhibits and animals.,you can even see cows given birth in the moo-maturity ward.also there is no way you leave hungry as they have an endless variety to choose from, everything from deep fried tacos to Italian sausage...
