Notes from the North

Alaska's Late Summer Blast!


The Alaska State Fair is an annual celebration of gigantic proportions! Founded in 1936, by a group of settlers from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, and Oklahoma, the fair is a time-honored tradition which marks the end of our exceptional summer.

Every August, Alaskans flock to the Matanuska-Susitna Valley to witness record-setting, monstrous vegetables, beautiful flower gardens, delicious Alaskan-style food, live music, and much more!
