As we get ready for the 177th Dutchess County Fair to get under way in Rhinebeck, New York we are excited to tell you about all of the things you are going to be able to do and enjoy from Tuesday August 22 through Sunday August 27th, 2023. Before we do that though we want to mention something important that the Fair this mentioned this morning (August 18th, 2023) on their social media.

Apparently just like other ticketed entertainment events the Dutchess County Fair is not immune to scammers. In the past there have been various places you could buy your fair tickets throughout the Hudson Valley but this year the fair is being very specific about where you should buy tickets in order to avoid scams.
