Powers Great American Midways was founded in Western New York in 1980. It began as a small regional carnival and has grown over the last 41 years to become one of the largest and well respected family-owned amusement companies in the United States! There are three generations of the Powers family who continue to oversee every aspect of their midway on a day to day basis. It is with great pride that this is the 15th consecutive year that Powers has been the midway partner for the Dutchess Fair! We look forward to the 2020 Fair and beyond!
