Some of the biggest summer events in the Hudson Valley area are the county fairs. If you are in Ulster County the week of August 2nd to the 7th, you need to go to the Ulster County fair, right outside of New Paltz, New York. It is one of the best events of the year, and there is family fun every inch of the fairgrounds! 

            It doesn’t matter what you like to do the Ulster County Fair will have something for you! There is a wide variety of rides from the Ferris wheel, to bumper cars! And, don’t worry if you have little ones, there are plenty of rides that are not too high in the sky for you tot to ride! There are also plenty of games that you can win you sweetie or little one a giant stuffed animal or fun trinkets to adore! And who doesn’t want to win their special lady a prize! One thing I would recommend if you like to go on the rides, buy the tickets that include the unlimited rides, it ends up saving you money if you go on more than four rides.

            There are always plenty of vendors at the fair selling toys, airbrush tattoos and other odds and ends. It is a great place to go and just look around at all the things that are there!

            The Ulster County fair is also great for animal lovers! This year they are suppose to have a petting zoo. Not to mention they are supposed to have wolves, lemurs and kangaroos for you too see. Most of the time you can pay to take you picture with an exotic animal! It is quite the thrill. But, don’t worry they people who handle animals are professionals and very kind to the animals. And the proceeds got o taking care of the animals you just got to see!

            One of the best things about going to any fair in the Hudson Valley is the food! They have local farms that are members of 4H dispensing homemade all natural ice cream and milkshakes! Not to mention they will be Spacey Tracey’s pickles, fried and regular. Gyro and rib stands, frozen lemonade and the friend Oreos and Twinkies! If you are there you need to get some friend Oreos, I didn’t think I would like them, but they are quite delicious! I generally fast the week before so I don’t feel so guilty for all the junk that I eat so much, plus you burn off most of it walking around all day enjoying yourself!          

            The Ulster County Fair is one of the best places to go, eat and enjoy the day. New Paltz, where the fair is only 75 minutes by car outside of the city, and you can take Metro-North to Poughkeepsie and you can catch a bus that will take you right to the fair. So make you way to the Ulster County fair, for fun, food and things to do!
