Well it's Erie County Fair time again with a new addition to the Fair this year:  The “Erie County Fair Cooks! Kitchen & Shoppe” featuring actual cooks!  “Erie County Fair Cooks! Kitchen & Shoppe” will be located inside the lower level of the Fair’s Security Building on the Avenue of Flags in a retail area formally known as “The Mall” and will feature a demonstration kitchen as well as vendors specializing in culinary related products and services.

Erie County Fair CEO & Manager Dennis Lang said this:

“The primary mission of the “Erie County Fair Cooks Kitchen & Shoppe” is to highlight regionally sourced and grown products, promote easy to cook at home meal options and to expose Fairgoers to Western New York’s dynamic culinary scene,”


Relative to the new culinary feature at this year's Erie County Fair, one of the highlight of the Fair schedule will be an appearance by the 2016 winner of FOX Network’s MasterChef Competition, Chef Shaun O’Neale from Las Vegas, on August 12 & 13.
