An eclectic and exciting mix is on tap for this year's Grandstand Lineup at the Erie County Fair.
"From music legends to current chart toppers, our team worked extremely hard to find the best entertainers possible while all along trying to add more free shows and to keep ticketed shows reasonably priced," said Jessica Underberg CEO and Fair Manager.
