Erie County Fair Gusto Grandstand Tickets ON SALE NOW!!

Well Fairgoers, it has been a long, cold winter season in WNY, but now that it is over, it is time to start thinking “warm, summer thoughts” and to me, that can mean only one thing, Erie County Fair time!!  This Erie County Fair blogger has been counting down since the ending of EC Fair 2014 to the Fair that I am looking forward to this year.

This year we are celebrating the 176th Erie County Fair and what a better way to start thinking fair thoughts than to talk about all the wonderful concerts that are coming this year to the Gusto Grandstand. Tickets for all of these shows are on sale April 24th.
