Street Fair to Celebrate Revitalized Arlington Community

Rain or shine, carnival rides, live entertainment, musical guests, and more than 100 vendors (including restaurants, shops, and craftspeople) will line Raymond Avenue, from Collegeview Avenue to the Eastbound Arterial (Rte 44/55) for the tenth annual Arlington Street Fair on September 26.

The festivities will start at noon with a ribbon cutting in celebration of the revitalized Arlington area and will continue until 6 p.m. All proceeds will go to support local charities.

Food lovers, in particular, will rejoice at the variety of Arlington restaurants represented at the fair—the Poughkeepsie Journalrecently recognized that visiting Arlington was akin to “a culinary trip around the world.”

To add to the excitement, the fair’s annual local Chili Cook-off has now become even larger; it’s now the New York State Chili Cook-Off, boasting 30 judges, including public figures, local celebrities, business people, and students, who will taste entries in three categories: chili, chili verde, and salsa.
