The Dutchess County Fair is one of the biggest annual events in the Hudson Valley, and it just keeps growing every year. This year, we can expect to see more than 400,000 people attending the fair. 

Just think about that number for a second. 400,000 people. That is a lot of humans. And they're all there to experience what the fair has to offer, from the insane foods to the rides to the concerts and everything in between.

If you live in the Hudson Valley, chances are you or someone you know is going to the fair. And if you live in Rhinebeck near the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, you're going to have to deal with the traffic of 400,000 people getting in and out of the fair, which seems like it could be annoying. Unless you're ALSO going to the fair, which, statistically, you probably are.

So hey, you should go! Be one of the 400,000. There's always cool stuff happening at the fair and you'll be able to try foods that people won't believe even exist (this year there's something called a grilled cheesecake and I want it all up in my face).
