    love it, I go every year. nice clean fair grounds, nobody burning there garbage in a homemade woodstove at there site! 99% car stuff, so if your looking for a weed wacker, you already missed stafford springs :)
    as for the tent, Im not sure, I know they have RV spots at the far end of the parking lot so Id guess they would let you pitch a tent (that sounds sooo wrong to say)

    Great show. My boys and I are excited. Usually spend more time at the swap meet, but the car show is cool too. I think they do Hot Rods on Saturday, and Antique Cars on Sunday. Not sure about the camping. It is about 60 miles from Albany, over the Rhinecliff Bridge. They also do a great job with parking, never waiting too long.

    Great show will be set up in the building selling my model car kits, promos and diecast. Saturday is hot rods and sunday is stock. Only show I do that sunday is as big as saturday. I am south of Rhinebeck but the drive up there is even nice.

    I went every year when I live in NY.Nice's Show grounds I have been to.Clean rest rooms,paved walkways,great food vendors,big indoor areas for vendors,good parking,and huge old trees for shade.All car shows and swap meets should take a lesson from this one.

    I set up Fridad and is a great day to pick. But not everyone is set up. Saturday mourning is as good as Friday. If you do friday be prepared to walk through since new stuff pops up as people set up all day.

    Always a GREAT time! The ride up the Taconic Parlway this time of year is really nice. The Fairgrounds are well maintained, parking is easy in, easy out. If I can find a part I need for a project fine, something to flip is even better. Always good to see old friends, and make new ones. Hope to hit the field around 8 Saturday. Bob

    Like the Syracuse Nats, Rhinebeck is a show /swap that I don't miss. It's definitely worth your time to come check it out.
     
  19. If you go, take I-81 and then over I-86/NY-17 and cut over on the two-lanes from around Liberty to Kingston (route 209) so the only toll you pay is one way across the Hudson.

    I went a couple of years, the one year I drove, and going that way (how I came home) was about the same time-wise as going 75 down I-90 (which I did going down), but no toll and some pretty scenery down through there. Plus I was able to eat in the truckstop in Binghamton, which isn't a bad restaurant.


    The show is big, probably the best thing to compare it to is Norwich - but it gets more cars, the fairgrounds is a tad classier, and the swap/flea market is like 90% guys with car stuff or car-related stuff. It's also the same thing as far as hot rods one day and AACA classics the next.


    If you're going for fun it should be a great trip; I used to go and vend with a buddy and I could never sell enough to do more than pay for the gas - and that was when gas was like half what it is now. So I stopped going.


    And if you see the mayor of Kingston, be sure to flip him off. Google Shayne Gallo for umpteen stories as to why.

    To be honest, NO! But then again for those that go looking around there are some good prices after 12 noon.

    Friggin missed this show. I totally forgot about it, then I spoke with a customer on the phone yesterday and he asked if I went. CRAP that was last weekend wasn't it?

    Anyone know when Norwich is? Missed that last year.
