A Great Tradition Continues This Year at the Dutchess County Fair

I am so happy to be emceeing Raphael's Talent Search at the Dutchess County Fair again this year! It's such a wonderful event--so much fun for everyone--for the performers, the audiences, and . . . for me! I hope you can come by one of the days--Tuesday, August 20 through Saturday, August 24--anytime between 10 and 2. The variety and caliber of talent will surprise and delight you!

And there's something extra special happening this year! It's VERY EXCITING NEWS!!! Winners in each of the categories will be eligible to audition for the TV show, America's Got Talent! Each winner will be given a Front of the Line Pass for auditions in November.

This is the 55th year of the Talent Show at the Dutchess County Fair, which continues thanks to the tireless dedication and generosity of the Mark Family, who carry on the legacy of Raphael Mark, who started the tradition way back when publicity photos were in black and white! 

Because of the exciting news for this year's performers, the registration deadline has been extended.  For a 2019 Talent Search application, please go to the Fair website here or contact Jason or Christina at 845-889-4099. And here's a link to the Facebook page for Raphael's Talent Search.  

See you at the Fair!
