In an effort to safely host smaller events that carry on the traditions of the Alaska State Fair while minimizing health risk, the Fair will host a Harvest Fest at the fairgrounds Labor Day weekend, from Friday, September 4 through Sunday, September 6.
The event goes back to the Fair’s agricultural roots, with events, vegetable exhibits, vendors and entertainment focused on agriculture, livestock, Alaska products, Alaska Grown produce and local talent.
The safety of festival guests, vendors, staff and volunteers is the top priority as the Fair plans the event, which will cap attendance to allow adequate social distancing. Organizers are working closely with the Department of Health and the Governor’s office on the event safety plan and are utilizing FEMA methods for calculating social distancing occupant loads.
The Fair is asking that anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 please remain home and guests are strongly encouraged to wear masks.
