ThinkDIFFERENTLY Hours at the 172nd Dutchess County Fair

August 22 - August 27, 2017

"ThinkDIFFERENTLY" Thursday on Aug. 24th, giving families entry into the Fair at 9 a.m., an hour before the official 10 a.m. start time, and access to the midway from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. without flashing lights or loud sounds. Families will have the opportunity to enjoy the fairgrounds, including the animal barns on Livestock Hill and the 4H Exhibit Hall, ahead of the crowds. While not all of the attractions and exhibits will be open at 9 a.m., the soft opening provides families a chance to ease into their day at the Fair as the fairground "wake up for the day."
