Relive the Excitement of the Dutchess County Fair With These Insta-Worthy Moments

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 174th year on Sunday, and it was easily one for the books. Top performers like Daughtry, LOCASH, Dylan Scott, and Lanco 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 Associate Editor, Jane Anderson, judged the fourth 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.


High-Flying Rides



About yesterday! 🎡 ✨ Spent the weekend with friends on the last day of the @dutchesscountyfair in Rhinebeck! .. Just only two hours outside the city with the Metro-North, the easy going and warm vibe of the Dutchess County Fair was welcoming. Was tempted to buy a tractor ngl, had the best peach tea, and saw some intense pig racing, too 😆 Also felt amazing to leave the city for a bit! It’s a great day trip with friends and family! Swipe to see the best sunset in Poughkeepsie! 🌅 . . . . #summerfairs #rhinebeckny #dutchesscounty #dutchesscountyfair #dutchesscountytourism #carnival #carnivalrides #ferriswheels #summergetaways #upstateny #newyork #blogger #nyblogger #nyc #funweekendtrips #thingstodoinny
