Explore the Spectacular Midway Rides

Children under 36" are not permitted on Midway rides. Limited rides are available for children 36"- 48.” You can bring younger children to the kiddie areas.

Bring the Kids to the Animal Exhibits

Don’t forget about the animals! Farm animals have been and remain a key part of fairs in the U.S., and the Altamont Fair is no exception. Horses, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens, and more cute farm animals will be at the barns and show rings during the fair. It’s a great opportunity to learn about these animals and see live demonstrations.
