Every year, Alaska State Fair, Inc. receives many requests for tickets from agencies that serve disadvantaged and disabled people of all ages. Without a complimentary ticket, many of these people would be unable to attend the Fair. Contributions to the Fairʼs Helping Hands program is the only way we are able to fund this worthy program. A visit to the Fair helps not only educate and entertain, their experience here hopefully helps them grow and progress with their developmental skills.

The Helping Hands program has donated to agencies like The Arc of Anchorage and Hope Community Resources who help children and adults that experience developmental disabilities or mental health issues. On average, we have a total of 400 ticket requests each year, which costs around $4,800. One hundred percent of your donation will be used for Helping Hands admissions.

The Farm Family of the Year award was established by the Alaska State Fair in 2000 to honor an Alaskan farming family and show appreciation for all the hardworking Alaskans committed to agriculture. After reviewing nominations, an awards committee chaired by the Alaska Division of Agriculture selects the winning family based on production of quality Alaska Grown products, community and agricultural organization involvement, and overall image.
