Erie is famous for its summer fairs and festivals. COVID has made planning difficult for organizers, but most fairs and festivals are still occurring at least in some fashion during the summer of 2021 while others — like CelebrateErie — have been reimagined this year as organizers have been forced to pivot.
Because information is changing rapidly not all details are yet available for many of the festivals and fairs as of June 7. We will continue to update throughout the summer as more details are announced.
