State Fair

Alaska State Fair sign

The Alaska State Fair is located at the foot of the Chugach mountains.  This alone makes the fair uniquely inviting. Known for its showing of record-setting giant vegetables, the fair also hosts such events as a lumberjack  show, a pig race and a demolition derby (as well as  a diaper derby!) to name only a few. Contests include the "Great Alaskan Husband Hollerer"; a chili challenge; the fiddle contest; a rodeo;  a giant cabbage weigh-off and many, many more! There are events for the young as well as the young at heart. The length of the fair attests to the number  of things to do!  Many people take several days to enjoy the many flavors, rides and unique sights.
