LOCKPORT – Weekday group tickets have been placed on sale in advance of the Niagara County Fair, which runs Aug. 5-9.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County, which operates the fair, said nonprofit and municipal groups may attend on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, Aug. 5-7, at a group rate of $4 per person, which is $1 less than will be charged at the gate.
A group must have at least 12 members to qualify for the discount. Groups of 20 or more will receive the group rate plus two free tickets. Cooperative Extension is requesting advance contact from all groups requiring bus or van parking, because such parking is limited on the Fairgrounds. Also, any groups that buy tickets will not be able to obtain refunds after July 22.
Requests for the advance tickets must be in writing on the organization’s letterhead and include a contact name, phone number, the number of tickets and a check payable to CCE Niagara County, whose address is 4487 Lake Ave., Lockport, NY 14094.
Any organizations or companies wishing to donate fair tickets to nonprofit groups may call Cooperative Extension at 716-433-8839, extension 222.
