The 181st fair will instead be postponed to 2021, according to event organizers.

“Although our Board and staff share a feeling of profound disappointment in making the announcement to cancel the 2020 Erie County Fair, it has become clear that canceling is the responsible choice for the Fair to do its part to support community health and safety, and to minimize the spread of COVID 19,” said CEO and Fair Manager Jessica Underberg.

Full refunds for the 2020 12-day passes will be processed by mailing back the Fair office at 5600 McKinley Parkway in Hamburg, New York 14075.

You must include the name and address of the person requesting the refund.

Personal refunds will not be handled at the Fair's main office due to the pandemic.

I usually make it to at least one day of the Fair every August, so this is incredibly disappointing, but understandable, given the COVID-19 pandemic, the events that have already been postponed and the sheer size of this great fair.
