From 21 August 2014 To 1 September 2014


Anchorage, Alaska

The Alaska State Fair is just six weeks away, and is a must-visit for anyone planning a trip to Anchorage this summer.

Running from August 21st to September 1st, this festival has been held annually for close to 80 years, and since its inauguration has become a much-loved fixture in Alaska's events calendar.

This year's festival promises just as exciting a mix of traditions and entertainment as ever. A staple of the fair is the giant vegetable growing competitions, with the giant cabbage contest having begun all the way back in 1941.

Visitors can also look forward to plenty of great food, as well as fantastic concerts. 

You will find the fairground just north of Anchorage - just follow the Glenn Highway. There are four entrance gates to choose from, with the Red, Yellow and Purple all offering car parks, so if you're planning to hire a car during your holiday in Alaska, make sure you enter the fair at one of these.

And if you still need to organise a place to stay, book a room in the Millennium Alaskan Hotel Anchorage.
