Activities & Events

The Ag Program and Mattabeset FFA Chapter have many informational and recreational events throughout the year. Visit The FFA Page for more information, by clicking here. This page highlights two of our best events for learning about our program: the Open House and the Parent/Student Orientation.


Duck Race

Date: To be Announced, check our main page.


The Mattabeset FFA holds an annual duck race to raise funds. The event is a great event. All ducks are collected at the conclusion of the race. Funds raised will help off-set the costs of sending our students to the National FFA Convention.



The annual Open House will be held at the Agriculture Center in April. The public is invited to attend this free event. The day program is geared towards pre-school and elementary age children; the evening session is for the general public. Students who are interested in taking Agriculture are encouraged to attend. The program is still accepting applications for enrollment.

The purpose of the Open House is to showcase the Agriculture Science & Technology Center through displays, demonstrations and hands-on activities, highlighting the key curriculum areas of plant science, animal science, agricultural mechanics, and natural resources. The Open House will highlight the persity and opportunities in agricultural education. For more information on the Open House or to reserve a time for your group to attend, call (860) 704-4594.
