Helpful Tips to make your Altamont Fair experience more fun! 

  1. Make a plan of where to meet on the fairgrounds in case you are split up.
  2. Make note of where you came in - all the gates are numbered.
  3. Make sure to bring medications with you in case of an emergency.
  4. Bring a stroller/wagon for the kids - there is a lot of ground to cover!
  5. Bring sunscreen and apply often!
  6. Lost child - Talk to your children about what to do if they get lost. All fair staff have      been trained to assist. Make sure you have a recent picture of your child. We recommend taking a picture at the gate you entered in. Your child should go to a person with a name badge within a  building, at any of the five gates or a person in a security uniform.
  7. If you have a large party, be sure to designate a time and place to meet if you are separated.
  8. Open toed shoes, sandals and flip-flops are not allowed on many of the rides.
  9. Saving the midway for last. If you use Gate 5 off of Altamont-Voorheesville Rd, take a right as you enter the fairgrounds. This will take you in a counter clockwise direction around the entire fairgrounds, saving the rides until last.
