Though the COVID-19 pandemic forced most fairs and festivals in the mid-Hudson Valley to be canceled, residents will be able to taste the fair food they may have missed at Dutchess Stadium this weekend.

The Hudson Valley Drive-Thru Fair Food Festival is set to take over the Fishkill stadium for four days of foodie fun, beginning Thursday, without any of the foot traffic.

Guests will be provided a menu and drive on a route past the various food trucks in attendance. They will be able to place their orders from their vehicles and even reenter for seconds.

The festival attempts to address COVID-19 concerns by limiting guests to their vehicles and barring foot traffic. Attendees will order and eat from their car.

The event is free to attend, but not to park. Guests can purchase a $10 ticket to secure a parking space at the stadium, which also includes
