The Hudson Valley is known for having some of the best county fairs anywhere and if you're a fan of Prince, AC/DC, or Metallica their music will be blasting out of Orange County this summer.

Later this summer, we have the Ulster County Fair kicking off in New Paltz, followed by the Dutchess County Fair in Rhinebeck, the third week of August, but before either of those start, we have the Orange County Fair and this year's fair is featuring music you might recognize.

Orange County Fair

The 2022 fair kicks off on July 14th and runs until July 31st at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Middletown, New York. The fair will have everything your traditional fair has including rides, games, and food. This year organizers of the fair have announced that they are planning to feature some great music for fairgoers to enjoy.
