From August 20th - 25th, the bucolic fairgrounds on Route 9 in Rhinebeck plays host to nearly half a million patrons at the Duchess County Fair. The second largest county fair in New York State is the showplace for agriculture in Dutchess County. Over 144 acres of finely manicured gardens and grass create the beautiful setting for thousands of farm animals, agricultural exhibits and horticultural displays.

The fairgrounds become an entertainment destination where big name talent can be enjoyed, “thrill a minute” excitement can be experienced and free shows and attractions can be viewed from the time you arrive to the time you leave.

Some featured attractions include: Commeford's Petting Zoo of Exotic Animals, Rosaire's Racing Pigs, Dock Diving Dogs, Mad Science show, jugglers and Oscar the Roving Robot among others.

Advance adult admission to the fair is $12. ($15 at the gate), children under 12 yrs of age are admitted free, $10 for seniors 65+ and military (with ID). Rides and food tickets can be purchased in advance at a discounted rate and are also available for purchase at the fair. All events are rain or shine.
