Alaska State Fair

August 16 - September 2


“Everything’s bigger in Alaska” doesn’t just refer to mountains,
glaciers, and wildlife. Alaska’s largest event, the Alaska State Fair,
takes place in Palmer
in late August and early September. Concerts, performances, exhibits,
thrilling rides, and world-record-setting vegetables are all part of the
fun. Giant produce — like a 1,471-pound pumpkin and 94-pound cabbage —
amaze spectators before becoming dinner for animals at the Alaska
Wildlife Conservation Center and other regional sanctuaries.

14-day event features many quirky activities and classic state far
staples. From quilting and sewing to honey and beekeeping to baked goods
and local art, hundreds of exhibitors show off their crafts at the
fair. With competitions like the Diaper Derby and Toddler Trot, Beer
Tap, Beard Contest, and Senior Joke and Storytelling, the fair draws
visitors of all ages from near and far.
