All NEW Agriculture Discovery Center at the Erie County Fairgrounds

The Fairgrounds has Announced Plans for a State of the Art Agriculture Complex

Hamburg, NY-The Board of Directors of the Erie County Agricultural Society has unveiled plans to construct a new 60,000 square foot Agriculture Discovery Center.

The Agriculture Discovery Center will be a state-of-the-art complex which will provide visitors with an opportunity to learn and experience the profound place agriculture has on our daily lives. The facility will host agriculture education programming year round including many interactive exhibits designed to enhance the learning experience.

Preliminary sketches were presented to the members of the Erie County Agricultural Society at its Annual Meeting held on December 12, 2012. Plans will be to incorporate the popular Milkable  Mabel, the Blacksmith Shop and the Milking Parlor into the new complex.

Demolition of the current Ag-Sperience Barn along with Barns 7 and 8 will begin following the 2013 Fair so that the Agriculture Discovery Center can be ready for the 175th Anniversary of the Erie County Fair in August 2014.
