The first is a weekend getaway that we have established through our partnership with the Metro North Railroad. With this package we can offer discount round-trip rail fare from your boarding station on the Hudson line to the Poughkeepsie Station. This package also includes discount festival admission and a shuttle from the station to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. The cost for admission to the fair as well as shuttle is adults, $28, seniors, persons with disabilities and individuals receiving Medicare, $26.50; children 12-20, $18, children 11 and under, free. The cost of the train fare will vary depending on your boarding station.
This package can be purchased at your Grand Central Terminal (GCT), Harlem-125th Street, all Metro-North ticket offices and full-service Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs) (except Poughkeepsie Station). The special event ticket will not be sold on board Metro-North trains or over the Internet through WebTicket. This package is available through the day of the event.
You can also save on your ride from NYC or Albany via Amtrak® to the Rhinecliff Station. When you purchase one full price ticket on select trains to the Rhinecliff station then you will receive a second ticket for half-off. We will have a shuttle available to meet the specified trains at the Rhinecliff station that will take you to and from the Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest for a small additional fee of $3/person.
