Did you know the largest youth fair in the state takes place in Lockport? #themoreyouknow

Every year 35,000+ people attend Niagara County Fair. NBD. Clearly locals and out-of-towners love this tradition. Never been? You can expect 5 full days of family fun. Think food, live music, performances, contests, rides, and more. Mark it your calendar. The Niagara County Fair takes place from July 31 to August 4.  


Fair Food

To celebrate the start of the festival there’s a Farm City Breakfast, complete with scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, hash browns, and sweet rolls on July 31 at 8 a.m.

As for the rest of the fest, the 4-H Milk Bar is always a fair favorite for fresh milkshakes, floats, and ice cream. The food vendor lineup is seriously stacked. You’ll find all the classics like old fashioned kettle corn, candy apples, taffy, curly fries, burgers, hot dogs, soft pretzels, nachos, freshly squeezed lemonade, and so much more. 



This year’s headliners are furry and four-legged. And yes, canine. The Dynamo Dogs perform all over the country. Their entertaining variety act is award-winning and truly one-of-a-kind. 

There’s also an aquatic acrobatic show. This world-class act brings together five generations of the most talented performers for a unique water stage production. Plus, there will be an exotic petting zoo and plenty of carnival rides and games for your whole fam to enjoy.
