Description: For six days each August, the 144-acres fairground hosts nearly half a million visitors who come to see farm animals on display, pig races, a horse show, milking demonstrations, and a variety of free shows throughout the day. Fair-goers can shop from hundreds of vendors selling crafts, clothes, jewelry, and more. Indulge in a mind-boggling array of fair food including the fair's specialty - milk shakes made by kids in the local 4H. And if you have energy left at the end of the day, there's a carnival with rides and games that light up the summer nights. The bathrooms are always clean. Parking is plentiful. And there's a very accommodating tent for nursing mothers to take a break and get some privacy. Can't get more family-friendly then this event and once you get past the drive up to Rhinebeck, we promise your kids will enjoy themselves.
