Service Animal Policy
All of us at the Fair love animals but the fairgrounds are no place for pets. The Alaska State Fair is committed to the use of service animals by our guests with disabilities.
The ADA states, “Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.” SERVICE animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as SERVICE animals under the ADA. SERVICE animals play an important role in ensuring the independence of people with disabilities, and it is the Fair’s policy to welcome any animal that is individually trained to assist a person with a disability.
For everyone’s safety we ask that you leave your pets at home that includes comfort animals (Emotional Support Animals (ESAs), and Therapy Dogs). PETS are NOT ALLOWED since they do not receive special training and do not perform a specific task to help disabled owners. Crowds are not a good place for pets.
Please be sensitive to our guests with SERVICE animals. Visitors found to have fake service animals will be asked to leave the fairgrounds.
