Now Accepting Applications for Fair Camp At This Year's Erie County Fair

Have you ever wondered what it is like to sleep in the barns at the Erie County Fair, or to take care of those precious animals that stay right there too?  What about riding in the parade or seeing just how cotton candy and taffy is made?  Well, now here’s your chance!

The Erie County Fair is inviting all 8, 9, and 10 year olds to fill out an application for the chance to be one of the “campers” chosen in the third (3) year of Fair Camp.  Campers (& their same sex parent or guardian) will sleep in the barns, help take care of the Ag-Sperience animals, have the opportunity to show a calf, learn more about that yummy fair food, and even ride in the parade.  Campers & their guardians will come away from the ultimate Fair Camp experience with a greater knowledge of agriculture and livestock, not to mention and inside view of the great Erie County Fair, through hands-on activities under the supervision of qualified staff (camp counselors).
