GCI KIDS DAY

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! The Just for Kid’s Cookie Contest, presented by vagabond Blues, will be taking place in the Hoskins Exhibit. Over in the BP Truck Grandstand, kiddos will be testing their skills in the Jr. Rodeo.

All events and times subject to change.
