The summer season is in full swing in the Empire State, and one of the key things that comes along with summertime is a fair season.

From the Great New York State Fair to county fairs all over New York, the time for rides, fried dough, and amazing family fun is here.

The 2024 Erie County Fair Is On The Way

Founded by the Erie County Agricultural Society, a self-sustaining not-for-profit membership corporation, The Fair was created in 1820 to preserve and enhance, through educational endeavors, the agricultural and historical legacy of New York State. The Erie County Fairgrounds, located in Hamburg, NY, has more than 275 acres of land and more than 110 permanent buildings.

The 2024 Erie County Fair will run from August 7, 2024, to August 18, 2024, and this year will mark its 184th year.

This Years Erie County Fair Attractions Are Exciting

The Fair will have all the favorite attractions that we have come to love about it, from the 4-H, FFA & Youth Livestock Auction to the rides. Of course, who cannot forget The Buffalo News Grandstand, which is set to feature all sorts of entertaining shows and concerts.

The shows that come to the Erie County Fair rarely disappoint. In past years, we've seen the likes of Flo Rida, Nelly, and more. This year's lineup is looking just as good as previous years.

The 2024 Fair lineup is likely to leave music fans feeling pretty good, from Travis Tritt with Aaron Tippin and Pam Tillis to the I Love the 90s Tour featuring Vanilla Ice, Rob Base, and Young MC.

You can check out the full concert lineup below; all of the fair details can be found here on the Erie County Fair website.
