Erie County Fair

Thank you for all the donations this year! We receive a total of 36,995 pounds of food donated in the first day of the Fair!




Welcome to the 176th Erie County Fair! August 12th-Agust 23rd


Join us as we continue our partnership with the Fairgrounds to hold our annual Food Drive! Last year was an amazing food drive for Western New York.

Map to the Fair


Last year, it was a great time and despite the rain and strong winds in the evenings, we did a record number of Johnsonville Brats sales. We raised enough money for 27,930 meals! And food donations were great every day of the Fair. Thank you to all the volunteers in the Grill Truck and to those that helped collect food at the gates!

This year we have special discounts for those bringing in canned goods for the Fair on special days.

We CAN Do It Wednesdays!

August 12- FREE Admission to the Fair with a canned food donation

Cans can be donated any day at any gate, however, only the dates listed above offer a special promotion with your donation. 

In addition to the food donation, the Food Bank of Western New York will be operating the Johnsonville Brat truck on August 14th-16th! Sales from the truck will be part of a direct donation to the Food Bank! Find us at the Fairgrounds if you are in the mood for an amazing brat! Keep in touch on facebook as the Fair gets closer so we can keep you updated on all the Food Bank/Fair events!


You can volunteer with us to handle the grill or sales of the brats too! Kids can help by being barkers too!
