The Altamont Fair (2022 dates TBD)

“See you where? At The Altamont Fair!!!” The Fair provides a wonderful opportunity for 4-H members to showcase what they’ve learned throughout the year. The 4-H building is located just inside Gate 1 of the Fair. There you will find exhibits related to Gardening, Ornamental Horticulture, Woodworking, Clothing and Textiles, Home Improvement, Photography, and Creative Arts. Each 4-H member presents their exhibit to a judge the Saturday before fair opens and is given both encouragement and constructive criticism to learn how to improve their skills.These exhibits are then displayed throughout the week for the public to enjoy.

In addition, there are a number of 4-H Animal Shows that go on throughout fair week. 4-H members can participate in the Poultry Show, Rabbit Show, Sheep Show, Goat Show, Dairy Show, Beef Show, Llama Show and Horse Show. The members are judged on how well they take care of and show their animals, which is a tremendous learning experience that proves to be helpful in mastering critical life skills later on.
