Hopefully, we have all gotten wise to the number of scams that are going around. It is pretty bad when they start involving a Hudson Valley venue known for hosting fun events. It also is bad when they don't even think to use spell check.

Last week the Dutchess County Fairgrounds had to share on their Facebook page that there was a vendor scam, or should I say "VEDOR" scam, going around soliciting vendors for events that were supposedly happening on the fairgrounds in February and another in March.

Fortunately the page it was shared to caught it and so did the Dutchess County Fair. The ridiculous part is that it had a huge typo in it which someone might have overlooked but it really would have been hard to miss.

The Fairground shared the post, which I have included below so all could see, and then took the opportunity to explain that their season doesn't open until April and if you want to keep up with what will be coming to the fairgrounds in 2023, you should follow them at www.dutchessfair.com.
