Dutchess County Fair

The experience

The experience of a lifetime awaits you at the 170th Dutchess County Fair in quaint Rhinebeck, NY.  Just two hours north, the largest six-day county fair in NY is 162 acres of family fun.  You will be immersed in agriculture with thousands of farm animals while enjoying horticultural displays in a park-like setting.  Learn about the past with a visit to an authentic one-room school house and Antique Village Museum.  Crafters selling one-of-a-kind items and plenty of free entertainment for all ages.  A host of other family activities include petting zoos with domestic, exotic and rainforest animals, racing pigs and dock diving dogs.  Over 50 carnival rides await children of all ages.  Is there food, you asked?  Bring your appetite.  Over 100 vendors serve everything from deep fried Oreos to full-course meals.

If you’ve never experienced a real county fair, don’t wait another summer. Come to the country for the Dutchess County Fair. We guarantee it will become an annual tradition.
