Reduced Fair Admission with Donations


Activities and exhibits on this special day focus on the energy that drives Alaska’s economy. Also, help out our local food banks and save on your admission! Between noon and 2 p.m. with a suggested donation of two shelf-stable food items per person you can get into the Fair for $2. (Must be through the gate by 2 p.m.) Come check out the Plaza to help AOGA celebrate “Energy Day” – and don’t forget to get your photo taken in the free photo booth!


We celebrate our youngest fairgoers on this very special day of the Fair! Enjoy free admission for kids 12 and under all day compliments of Alaska Born and Raised GCI. We believe that hunger knows no age, neither does teaching kids the importance of giving to others. Please bring a donation of two shelf-stable food items per child to Fair gates. Highlights of the day include a royal visit by Princesses of Alaska, Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman Kids’ Day Games, and Combs Insurance Agency, Inc. Diaper Derby and Toddler Trot! Over in the BP Truck Grandstand, kiddos will be testing their skills in the Jr. Rodeo.


By far the most popular day of the Fair! Grab your friends and family to watch the Fair parade in downtown Palmer, then head over to the fairgrounds for a day of Fair fun! At the gates, kids 12 and under receive a $2 discount on admission all day with a suggested donation of two shelf-stable food items. Prepare for take-off with Alaska Airlines. Make your first stop at Pioneer Plaza to check-in for a great day at the Fair and the latest Club 49 deals from our official airline. Keep up to date with #Club49 and #Iflyalaska. Mosey over to the rodeo and end your day by dancing the night away at the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman Rodeo Dance with live music by Savannah Jack!
