The 2023 Ulster County Fair is in the books and according to their recent post on social media, it was a record-breaking attendance year. Great weather, great fun, and a lot of effort by everyone evolved all the way down to the youngest 4H Clover Bud made last week in New Paltz, New York a great success.

Now it is time to turn our fair fun to the North and head to Rhinebeck, New York for the 177th Dutchess County Fair running August 22 through the 27th, 2023. Once again we will get to enjoy rides and fair fun at its best for the third time this summer in the Hudson Valley.
