The Director of Communications at the York Fair, Brianna Holmes says they've been preparing for the fair for over 50 weeks now and there's something for the entire family.

Their Ag and Education center is bigger and better this year, with a variety of learning stations set up, interactive animal exhibits, and of course the story barn.

You can find over 100 food vendors at the fair, and a new one this year is a father son duo. Joe Wade Sr. and Joe Wade Jr., have a mexican inspired food truck called The Nacho Depot!
