The annual Country Living Fair was held in Rhinebeck, NY, on May 31-June 2, 2019, at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. The Fair brings the magazine’s content to life and gives readers access to a unique shopping experience. The fair features 200+ vendors from more than 30 states and draws more than 20,000 visitors from across the country. Vendors include: antiques sellers, food purveyors, artists, furniture makers, crafters, and more.
Guests had the chance to meet Country Living editors and special guests; attend cooking, crafting, and DIY demonstrations and book signings; sample locally sourced, artisanal food; and participate in Make & Take Workshops.
