Mark your calendar for the return of the Altamont Fair on August 17-22, 2021! This popular summer event typically features a mix of new and old traditions and an array of shows and attractions. Here are some of the highlights:

Explore the Spectacular Midway Rides

Dreamland Amusements will be bringing the Midway and Carnival to the 2021 Altamont Fair. This is the area where you'll find tons of exhilarating amusement rides, all your favorite fair food and drinks, and plenty of games too.

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.
