While you're looking ahead and thinking about what Countryfest 2017 is going to be like, make sure you take a look at the list of things you can and can't bring into the fairgrounds this year plus find out all you need to know about parking and when you can arrive at the Fairgrounds. We want everyone to have a great time but at the end of the day, it's gotta be safe.

Doors open at 11:00am and the Schaghticoke Fair Parking lot opens at 10:00am.

*Please do not come early or overnight, authorities will not allow lines to form if deemed unsafe on Stillwaterbridge Road or Main Street and you may be forced to leave*

Parking at the Schaghticoke Fair is $10 per car and $30 for busses, campers, RVSAdditional parking available at Wiley Brothers off of Main Street for $15 per car

It's hard to give a time schedule because it may change but plan for music to start at noon and end around 7:30.

BRING- First and foremost, don't forget your ticket. You think it's an obvious one but imagine driving to the fairgrounds and then realizing your ticket is back in Albany. Make sure you put it in your car, in your wallet, in your underwear, wherever so you don't forget.

DON'T BRING- No outside food or drinks. There will be plenty of delicious options, no need to bring your own, all bags and purses will be searched.

You can take pictures but leave your professional camera at home because you won't be able to bring it into the fairgrounds.

You can bring chairs but don't even think about pitching a tent. Also, if you're bringing a chair, be mindful for those around you and be respectful in regards to chair placement.

Unless your pet is a service animal, please leave them at home. Pets are not allowed on the grounds.

Umbrellas are also not allowed, you can bring ponchos if you're worried about rain.

Most importantly, there is no re entry so if you need to get something out of your car, you will not be allowed back in the fairgrounds. You can find the answers to these and all of the questions on our website.

Can't wait to see you at Countryfest 2017 at the Schaghticoke Fairgrounds featuring Justin Moore, Randy Houser, Michael Ray, Rodney Atkins, and Walker McGuire.
