Rides & Midway

Free Entertainment 

Due to the pandemic related cancellations of carnivals and fairs in the northeastern United States, the James E. Strates Shows has been forced to
postpone their 2020 contract with us until 2021.

This latest news, combined with the lack of vendor commitment, has compelled us to postpone the Chemung County Fair until August 3 - 8, 2021.

Please continue to monitor our Facebook page for updates as we are still hopeful to host both 4H and open animal shows, if permitted to do so.
