A Little Something for Everyone! A word from the Dutchess County Fairgrounds Blog

I visited three of our sister fairs in New York State last week and once again am reminded why I love county fairs and am absolutely convinced that they are important for many reasons. The fact that we have been producing fairs for 200 years speaks to their importance. They have become part of our social fabric. It is the place where farm families socialized when farmers comprised the majority of our population. Fairs gave farmers the opportunity to select the best of their livestock, the finest products grown in their fields, and the nicest handmade articles and delicacies of the rural kitchen that mom could ready for the fair. The exhibitors and the exhibits still form the essence of our county fairs today. Our entries closed this week and our staff in that department worked tirelessly processing the THOUSANDS of entries.
