In an on-site interview at the Apple a Day Diner where Red Hook Rotary meets weekly, Dutchess County Fair Board member Lou Ruge and Fair Operations Manager Andy Imperati describe exciting events at the world famous Dutchess County Fair (Aug. 21-26, 2012). Of special interest are the new exhibits devoted to local agriculture and to educational programs showing how food gets from local farms to our kitchen table. The categories of shows are best described by the Fair’s various buildings (horticulture, poultry), arenas (horse), pavilions (livestock, sheep), and tents (canine, entertainment). Fair favorites in food, gifts, demonstrations, competitions, the petting zoo, and more all return this year. Now in its 167th year, the Fair attracts visitors worldwide!
