Erie County Fair asks: Are you ribbon worthy?


Thu, May 27th 2021 08:55 am

Erie County Fair competition entry information will be available online starting June 1

√ Range of competitive exhibit categories include agriculture, conservation & creative arts

“At the Erie County Fair, we love to compete! Spirited competition among peers is at the heart of the fair experience. Who has the best photograph? Best jam? Biggest stalk of corn?,” the venue asked this week.

Annually, the Erie County Fair offers a chance to show off the region’s creativity in a variety of exhibits – from wine making to fine arts, conservation to woodworking and agriculture, just to name a few.

Show off those new hobbies picked up over the past year. There are more 8,000 classes available for a chance to win cash prizes – but more importantly, the bragging rights associated with taking home a championship ribbon.

The Erie County Fair welcomes public participation as most competitions have no residency requirement. Only the “Home Wine,” “Home Brew” and “Conservation” categories are restricted to New York residents. Children as young as 5 are encouraged to take part in Junior Creative Arts submissions that include LEGO building block sculptures, handmade jewelry and doll making.

New competitions include scarecrow, rain barrel decorating, and windchime; these are limited to the number of entries.

Entry information that includes terms/conditions, class listings and deadlines will be available exclusively online at www.ECFair.org on June 1. Questions may be directed to [email protected] or 716-649-3900, ext. 6407.
