HAMBURG, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Erie County Fair is getting major national recognition.

According to Carnival Warehouse, the Erie County Fair is the third largest county fair in the country.

“This ranking is something that the entire Buffalo-Niagara region can take pride in accomplishing,” said Marty Biniasz, Erie County Fair Marketing Manager. “When looking at the ranking, you need to consider that the Erie County Fair out draws most state fairs in the United States. The west coast county fairs that rank above us benefit from a much longer operating run and are located in top 10 US population markets.”

Carnival Warehouse is an online site that posts news about fairs and carnivals. More than 1,200,000 visited the Erie County Fair this past August.

The Erie County Fair is ranked as the 12th largest fair overall.
