Acting on State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and the CDC recommendations regarding large events, this event is postponed until May 29-31.
Fairbanks, AK (March 16, 2020) –The State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services has released a list of recommended protective measures in order to prevent or slow the spread of COVID-19, including the consideration of cancelling, postponing or rescheduling of large events. And this past weekend the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) advised against holding events of 50 or more people for the next 8 weeks.
In response to these notices, the Carlson Center will be postponing the 30th Annual Fairbanks Outdoor Show originally scheduled for April 24-26, 2020 due to COVID-19 health concerns. The event will now take place May 29-31, 2020.
We hold the health and safety of the vendors involved and patrons who attend the event at the highest priority.
We sincerely thank you for your continued loyalty and patience during this challenging time.
