SHEEP EXHIBIT AT THE DUTCHESS COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS IN THE SUMMER.
I recently wrote about Rhinebeck as the place to be on the weekend. Are you looking for something to do this weekend? Well the NYS Wool and Sheep Festival will be held at the Dutchess County-Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck.
With winter approaching it is a great time to stock up on all the useful wool items. There will be over 350 vendors, so there is something for everyone.
Don't leave the children behind. I am sure they will be fascinated watching the sheep get sheared, and there is even an opportunity to pet the animals.
More and more people have turn to knitting. It is a relaxing activity for many, and even the Hollywood crowd has gotten into the act. So I am sure the attendance will be good!
LOCATION: Dutchess County Fairgrounds - Rhinebeck
DATE: October 20th and 21st 2007
ADMISSION: $10 but free to children under 12
And while you are in the area there are many other things you can do. For those interested in history you might want to check out the FDR Library in nearby Hyde Park, or try Montgomery Place, Clermont or Olana to name a few.
And as for finding places to eat you have many choices. Because of The Culinary Institute of America located in Hyde Park we have some wonderful chefs in the area.
