"Since 1936, Alaska State Fair features record-setting giant vegetables, beautiful flower gardens, concerts, plus Alaskan and Alaska Native culture. The Alaska Fair is held each Fall in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley.
Located an hour north of Anchorage, the Fair provides the ideal setting for Alaska’s last blast of summer against a backdrop of the Chugach Mountains. The Fair also offers a rich cultural experience, featuring hundreds of Alaska Native performers and artists, as well as 475 vendors offering uniquely Alaskan crafts, Alaska Grown products, and memorable Fair food.
We invite you to experience the Fair and also take advantage of the year-round events and services the Alaska State Fair offers including horse shows, facility rentals, concerts, trade shows, and winter RV & boat storage"
