WASILLA — Denali Harley Davidson is gearing up for their community-oriented event called the Unfair Fair from Thursday, Aug. 20 through Sunday, Aug. 23 at the dealership.

“The goal is just to help the community out and hopefully some of these vendors can make some money and be able to survive the winter, and stay in business,” store manager Fred Becker said.

This event was created to support Alaska State Fair vendors that lost significant amounts of income due to the cancellation and scrambling to find alternative venues to set up at. Admission, parking, and vendor space is all free for this event.

“The only way they’re going to survive in my opinion is by having these situations where they can go and setup. It’s one thing when you’re you know, your Red Robin or Locals. You can do curbside pickups. You can do deliveries. These vendors that set up at the fair, they don’t have that,” Becker said. “Everyone we’ve contacted about being there is highly enthused and grateful we’re doing something.”

While admission to this four-day festival is free, attendees are encouraged to make donations related to the daily theme.
