Relive the Excitement of the Dutchess County Fair

From carnival rides and concerts to funnel cakes and furry friends, there was so much to do in Rhinebeck this year.

The Dutchess County Fair wrapped its 173rd year on Sunday, and it was easily one for the books. Top performers like The Wallflowers, Kane Brown, Chris Lane, and Kip Moore took the concert stage during the week, while family-friendly entertainment like barn animals and a lumberjack show were a delight for both kids and kids at heart. Of course, we can’t forget about the delectable eats from our favorite fair vendors, either. After all, our very own Food Editor, Steve Fowler, judged the third annual SporkRun this year.

Didn’t get a chance to swing by the fairgrounds in Rhinebeck? No worries. We rounded up all the most Insta-worthy moments from the festivities last week. Take a peek, then be sure to tag us @hudsonvalleymag on Instagram if you have any snapshots to share.
