CLARENCE, N.Y. (WIVB) – Most of this summer’s fairs and festivals have been canceled due to COVID-19- but if you want to get your fried dough fix, the Great Pumpkin Farm can help.
The farm will host a “Great Fair Food Festival Drive-thru” the next few weekends!
The drive-through will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from June 5 to June 21, rain or shine.
We spoke with the owner of one six vendors, The Big Cheese. Owner Jack Kolassa talked about the fair’s cancellation. “It’s devastating because it’s such a big part of Western New York, as we know it,” he said. “But we’re trying to work around it and at least bring some fun.”
Customers can drive up, place their food orders from their cars, pay (cash only) and go.
Admission is free and no reservations are required. All servers and fair vendors will be following COVID-19 guidelines, wearing masks and gloves.
The Great Pumpkin Farm is located at 11199 Main St. in Clarence.
