The Erie County Fair will be returning very soon to the Hamburg Fairgrounds.

The annual fair will be held August 10-21 in Hamburg and a tradition for many Western New York residents every single summer.

The fair will return for what should be the first normal-looking fair year since 2019. On Thursday, we learned of when tickets will go on sale and the general information for the 2022 Erie County Fair.
