Overview

Event Overview:

The Matanuska Valley Agricultural and Industrial Fair Association was incorporated June 9, 1936. That same year, the Fair acquired a more permanent site from the Alaska Rural Rehabilitation Corporation (ARRC), where the Alaska Veterans and Pioneers Home is now located. In 1939, a then-record 1,600 visitors attended the Fair.

While the Fair has certainly come a long way since the first event in 1936, the spirit of the Fair remains relatively constant. Visitors do enjoy a wider range of events, such as big name entertainers and carnival rides, but the heart of the Fair still centers on the things the original colonists started with - agriculture, produce, lots of food, flowers, friends and family, and an old-fashioned, good time.
