It is fair and festival season and if you are anywhere around Western New York you may have seen the crowds gathering this summer! From Hamburg to Niagara County Chautauqua to Darien Lake there are tons and tons of things to do until Labor Day.

But one of the biggest events of the year in New York State is the annual New York State Fair and it begins this week.

If you are interested in getting free admission to the New York State Fair for the rest of your life, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles has an opportunity for you to do that.

According to reports, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles is offering you the chance to win free admission if you purchase a New York State custom license plate that honors the New York State Fair.

The Erie County Fair is happening now until Sunday on the Hamburg Fairgrounds. The weather has been pretty decent so far and the crowds have been strong! With free parking and a nightly firework show there are so many things that The Fair has offered this summer to welcome people back after a year off during the pandemic year of 2020.

The concerts have been sounding great. We don’t live far from the Erie County Fairgrounds and you can hear the crowd noise and the artists almost perfectly. It is exciting to know that people are back out having a good time after such a downer year last summer.
The New York State Fair will begin later this week on August 20 and run until September 6 on the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse. There are still some great tickets left for the concerts and there are some free shows are available this year as well.
