LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WKBW) — Cornell Cooperative Extension Niagara County is partnering with the Niagara County Thank a Vet program to offer free admission to the Niagara County Fair on August 7 to any veteran, current member of the military, or first responder.

The Niagara County Fair will run from August 3 to August 7. Admission is $5 per person or $15 per carload. Service members will receive free admission on August 7 and if there is a service member present in the vehicle, the $15 carload rate will be reduced by $5.

“We all rely on those who choose to serve us selflessly every day, this is just our small way of saying thank you.”
Justin Rogers, CCE Niagara Executive Director and Director of the Niagara County Fair.

Families can look forward to food, rides, live entertainment, and more. You can find more information here.
