For over 75 years, the Alaska State Fair has been a gathering place for all Alaskans, and a “last hurrah” before summer gives way to the long Alaska winter.What started as a celebration for the Mat-Su colonists in 1936 has grown into the state’s largest annual event. Each year, hundreds of thousands of fairgoers enjoyed nightly concerts featuring headline entertainers in the AT&T Concert Series, carnival rides and games, hundreds of food and vendor booths featuring uniquely Alaskan items, tens of thousands of exhibits in categories ranging from quilts and goats, world-famous giant vegetables like 2009’s world record-breaking 127-pound cabbage, and lots of activities and entertainment free with Fair admission. 12 fun-filled days. You're Gonna Love It!
