The Erie County Agricultural Society announced on Wednesday that it has decided to postpone the Erie County Fair 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
It was originally scheduled for August 12-23.
The next fair will take place from August 11-22, 2021.
“While our Board of Directors and staff share a deep disappointment in making the announcement to cancel the Erie County Fair 2020, it has become clear that cancellation is the responsible choice for the Fair to do its part for health and support community safety, and to minimize the spread of COVID 19, ”said CEO and Fair Manager Jessica Underberg.
Refunds for 12-day passes are processed by returning them to the exchange office at 5600 McKinley Parkway, Hamburg, New York 14075.
This is only the second time the scholarship has been canceled since 1841 – the other time was during World War II.
