The Tanana Valley State Fair has a new executive director and a mostly new staff. They are ramping up for a summer of preparation for the fair which will be the first week in August. At the fair association annual meeting last week, the punny agricultural theme of the fair, as well as headliner acts were revealed.
The Tanana Valley State Fair opens a week from Friday. New managers have filled the vendor space, recruited contest entries and booked entertainment, and as KUAC’s Robyne reports, they are hopeful they can put past fair controversies behind them.
