Be sure to review the Rules & Regulations for bringing Animals to the Afton Fair well in advance!
One of the main purposes of an Agricultural Fair, such as the Afton Fair, is to provide education on Agricultural topics and to provide a platform for youth and adults to learn and compete.
The Afton Fair provides several Agricultural Shows to meet these goals.
The Open Horse Show is a one day event held on the Saturday of the Fair, that provide the opportunity for horsemen and horsewomen the opportunity to show their skills and skills of their horse and compete for ribbons and small cash prizes.
For more information visit the Open Horse Show page.
Each year, the Afton Fair hosts a harness racing event featuring the Standard Bred horse breed, both pacers and trotters. These are the same teams that compete at larger, more well known tracks, and the races are very competitive. Entry to the grandstand for this yearly event is free.
For more information visit the Harness Racing page.
The Youth Dairy Show allows youth of all ages to show different breeds of dairy cattle in a competitive, but learning based event. The youth work with and care for their cattle prior to the event and showcase their cattle during the competition. Many of them go on to compete at the larger county fairs, or the state fair.
For more information visit the Youth Dairy Show page.
Each year, small animals such as rabbits, poultry and other small farm animals are displayed at the fair. Contests for rabbits and poultry are held each year.

There are other Animal and Agricultural Exhibits included at the Afton Fair, including historical displays and live animal exhibits.
