ERIE COUNTY FAIR---

At North America's largest county fair

For 12 days every August, a little more than a million people have a love affair at North America's largest county fair -- The Erie County Fair. (Courtesy Erie County Fair - ecfair.org) HAMBURG, N.Y. -- For 12 days every August, a little more than a million people have a love affair at North America's largest county fair -- The Erie County Fair.
"This is what America is all about families, friends, fun and a fair," said Holly Smyczynski, senior marketing co-coordinator of the Erie County Fair. It's about a 20-minute drive from the Niagara border. And what a great fair it is. Having visited the fair before, I know I'll need more than a day to cover the 171st annual event which runs between Aug. 11 and 22.

  1. I always heard that the L.A. county fair in Pomona, Calif. was the largest in the country. I played Hamburg with Tommy Hanneford and its one great fair. No knock, just what I heard. Keep up the good work. I look forward every day to your blog.
