125th Ulster County Fair kicks off today

Starting today at 4 p.m., Ulster County will be buzzing with humming motors, fried food, and live music as the 125th annual Ulster County Fair begins.

This year, over 45,000 people are expected to wander through the lines of rides and vendors at the Ulster County Fairgrounds in New Paltz by the time the gates close on Aug. 5.

The fair, which is managed and promoted by the Ulster County Agricultural Society is aimed at informing the public in the fields of agriculture, horticulture, and animal husbandry, according to the Ulster County Fair website.
