10 Reasons Your Child Should Join FFA or 4-H

Great reasons for your kids to join in the fun!
The Altamont Fair supports every opportunity for youth to be involved in building life skills and learning about agriculture.

You don't have to own animals to enjoy these groups!

It’s hard to imagine growing up on a farm without being in 4-H or FFA. Although there was no FFA in my high school in Ann Arbor, Mich., my siblings and I were active members of 4-H. Both organizations are important.

We had a tie this year for best food vendor. It was too hard to pick between these two dedicated, hardworking vendors. Brett was here the entire week with an injured hand, but still had a smile on his face and as always cheered everyone up. Brett’s bright yellow trailer matches the staff’s friendly service.
Jeannette’s has been a fair favorite for many years. In fact, they have been coming to the Altamont Fair for almost 50 years. At Jeannette’s stands you will always find a smile and positive attitude, even if the weather is gray. We value our hardworking vendors and love to recognize them each year during fair.

Our hearts go out to our friends at The Washington County Fair as they had to close today because of horrible weather. I'm not sure people are aware the impact of closing a fair even if only for a day. The exhibitors, the volunteers, the patrons, vendors....everyone is adversely affected.

Due to the weather Washington County Fair is closed to the public Today - Tomorrow we will be honoring Senior Day!

Will never be attending this fair again. The bartenders went out of their way to embarrass my mom who only had 2 beers by cutting her off. She didn’t even get up out of her seat. We were all sitting talking as a family spending time together. Well it didn’t end there! They had security come over with a story that made no sense and nothing collaborated at ALL. Literally made up scenarios that never happen. We argued with them and they told us we would all be done if we gave her any drinks. THEN THE BARTENDER CAME OVER WITH SCISSORS TO CUT HER BAND OFF! IF FRONT OF A TON OF PEOPLE. Just to embarrass her. Few minutes later my mom left upset and I turn over and see the man who threatened us and HE WAS DRINKING A BEER HIMSELF! ON THE JOB DRINKING?! I will never be attending here again. This is disgusting how they treated my family and I. We’ve been coming there for over 5 years. What a shame.
After every storm there is a rainbow. (Taken at Gate 3!)
How’s the weather out there right now??
And look who stopped by the fair last night! That’s right... our own local American Idol finalist! And... she will be back on Sunday afternoon! Congratulations to Madison VanDenburg on her success!
Hometown heroes bldg is excellent!
Online buyers please beware when buying altamont fair tickets online.
We still got 'em! These 4 were won at the fair 2 years ago!
We still got 'em! These four guys were won 2 years ago at the fair.
Once again I will not be attending the fair until all the symbols of hatred and terror are expunged. shame on you for allowing it.
just a reminder that there's no place for white supremacist displays and vendor sales at family events in our state's Capitol Region! #HateSpoilsTheFun #NoConfederate #FairForAll
Does anyone have any photos of the fair from the 1960s (and even 70s)?? Does anyone remember Nip and Tuck?? I used to love them and their handler was so great to the kids. I used to love to ride around... My family used to have an old picture but like so many old photos it seems to have disappeared. The fair is so much different then it used to be... no where as good I'm afraid. That place was a true annual event and people came from miles.. Is the old school house there at least?
