Here in Dutchess County, our community is committed to changing the way individuals, businesses and organizations relate to our neighbors with special needs through the ThinkDIFFERENTLY initiative. Hudson Valley KidVenture is a true reflection of this idea. Every child should be able to get out, participate in activities, explore, learn and have fun just like anyone else. The Chamber Foundation, Inc. is an organization that was established to provide educational opportunities for youth and the workforce, develop leadership skills, generate a commitment to community service and beyond. It is through wonderful programs and events such as Hudson Valley KidVenture that they continue to do so, and these events can be enjoyed by anyone!

This expo style event will take place inside the Mid-Hudson Civic Center, the ChangePoint Theatre and along Market Street in Poughkeepsie. Purchase your tickets today and come visit us in Dutchess County.
