178th Orange County Fair

For over 100 years, the Orange County Fair has been entertaining families in the Hudson Valley and beyond. Each year, we look for the best in family entertainment, local and national music, racing and auto events such as our demolition derby and of course amazing amusement rides. We have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in our grandstands and grounds, improving the guest experience and bringing the fair to a new level. If you haven't been to the fair in a while or if you have been a regular fair or race fan, we hope you will come out this year with your friends and family and see all we have to offer. Whether you are here to see one of our grandstand shows (almost all now have some free seating with fair admission), taste some of the delicious fair food, watch an incredible lion and tiger show or take a spin on one of our all new rides, we look forward to you making family memories that will last a lifetime.

Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival Presents The Heart of Robin Hood

Each summer, HVSF presents plays in repertory under a spectacular open-air theatre tent overlooking the Hudson River in Garrison. To escape her impending marriage to the villainous Prince John, Marion flees to the forest seeking a new life with the rogue hero Robin Hood and his crew of do-gooding men. Instead, Marion finds a group of common crooks, stealing from the rich and giving to… their own pockets. As the Prince schemes to betray the King and endanger all of England, Marion must summon the cunning and courage to take him down, save her people, and inspire the aloof Robin to find his own heart. Commissioned in 2011 by the Royal Shakespeare Company, an iconic folktale over 700 years in the making is completely reimagined in David Farr’s adaptation for audiences of all ages.
