If you’re looking for fun family activities in Westchester and the Hudson Valley this weekend, you’ve come to the right place! From carnival rides to mythical creatures to horseshoe tournaments and more, there’s a broad assortment of family fun in store.
The headline event is the Dutchess County Fair, returning for the 171st time, which retains its cultural richness with amusement rides, carnival games, livestock competitions, a petting zoo and more; and whether your idea of quality entertainment is live music or racing pigs, this fair has it all. Though perhaps in its shadow, the Otisville Country Fair offers distinctive twists like a chainsaw competition and a cast-iron frying pan toss. Pixie lovers will delight in a Fairy Walk, while dragon hunters unite at The Hunt for the Dragons of Merestead.
