If vintage, handmade, or Americana items are what you love, then the place to be this weekend June first through the third is the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck. That’s when this year’s Country Living Fair is coming to town and you know you don’t want to miss it.

They hold Country Living fairs throughout the country and they are a really big deal so it’s great we have our own right here in the Hudson Valley. It’s a great day of not just shopping but learning and gathering ideas and inspiration on how to turn our home from boring to looking like it stepped off the pages of Country Living magazine.

There will be over 200 vendors from more than 25 states. See antiques, culinary treats, furniture makers, crafters, and more. You can also attend cooking, crafting, and DIY demonstrations, book signings, sample locally-sourced, artisanal food, and shop the Country Living General Store.

New this year, the Country Living Fair will feature Make & Take Workshops. There will be a variety of these workshops available and for a small fee, you can pre-register. Click here for a list of special guests at this year's fair as well as admission information and more.
