Hamburg, N.Y. (WBEN) - The final fireworks show filled the skies over The Erie County Fairgrounds Sunday night and one month to the day after an EF-2 tornado hit the Fairgrounds, the 178th Erie County Fair in Hamburg concluded its 12-day run Sunday night.

Final attendance for 2017 is 1,193,279.  This is a 21% increase from 2016 and is the second highest attended Fair in the Erie County Fair’s history.  The all-time record attendance was achieved in 2014 - 1,220,101.

The Fair’s official closing release says its success cannot only be measured in people, but in vendors, exhibits, and most importantly, in memories.

The Erie County Agricultural Society would like to thank Western New York for its continued support of the Erie County Fair. Fair organizers have already begun planning next year’s “Best 12 Days of Summer.” The 179th Erie County Fair is scheduled for August 8-19, 2018.
