Alpha-Buffalo: E is for the Erie County Fair

The Erie County Fair, held each August on the Hamburg Fairgrounds (over 275 acres of fair fun!), is one of the largest county fairs in the country, drawing approximately 1 million attendees each year. The 12-day festival began as a one-day event in the 1840s, and has been held each year since, save 1943 when it was cancelled due to WWII.

Each year, the Fair combines agriculture and farming, musical entertainment, rides and games, motorsports and, of course, fair food to drawn hundreds of thousands to Hamburg. 2014 marks the 175th Erie County Fair.

Get ready for the Fair with announcements, schedules and more at www.ecfair.org.

**special note:  THIS is the fair that inspired Blue Rodeo's song “What Am I Doing Here?”
