Unfortunately, we know things will be looking a little bit different this summer thanks to COVID-19.

We've been holding our breath when it comes to what fair season will look this summer around the Hudson Valley and if we'll be able to enjoy the delicious foods and fun entertainment. With that being said, it looks like we'll have to wait for fair season in Ulster County.

According to the Ulster County Fair Facebook page the 2020 Fair is postponed to August 3rd-7th  2021. In a statement Fair officials said:

Your safety is and always will be our highest priority, so it became clear that postponement was the only choice after our team spent countless hours exploring every possible option.

A few weeks ago the Ulster County Fair announced their country music line up on the entertainment side. This included acts like Lee Greenwood, Roots and Boots Tour, The Swon Brothers and Emily Ann Roberts (from The Voice).

The Ulster County Fair also added:

The impact will be felt far beyond the loss of our annual celebration. We are heartbroken for our concessionaires, family farms, competitors, and exhibitors, Klein’s Entertainment and our Carnival Provider, Dreamland Amusements. Most of all, we will miss our young exhibitors and our 4-H family who prepare all year for the fair

While, here at the Wolf, we're sad to see the fair be postponed this year we understand the safety of our community comes first.

We also know that this will be a huge hit to the economy in Ulster County and we want to urge you to support your local business as much as you can throughout the year.
