Bringing History to the Alaska State Fair

The Alaska State Fair is right around the corner, and once again we will be showcasing Colony history in the historic Wineck Barn at the Fair, right inside the Red Gate.  (Stay tuned - we'll be posting more about the history of the Wineck Barn soon.)

Film Screenings:  We will present screenings of Alaska Far Away at 12:00 noon and 5:00 p.m., and Where the River Matanuska Flows at 2:00 p.m. These screenings are FREE with your Fair admission, so bring the family, rest your feet, and enjoy the shows.  The films will be shown daily (except for Sunday September 2nd).

Special Author Event:  We are excited to present local author Helen Hegener of Northern Light Media, who will be talking about her upcoming book, Matanuska Colony Barns. Helen will be showing photos of colony barns, and talking about their history and design.  Please stop by:  Saturday, September 1 at 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m

More Special Events:  More special events are in the works; we'll be announcing them in the next week or so. Stay tuned!

Shopping?  Of course! Alaska Far Away and Where the River Matanuska Flows will both be available for purchase in the Wineck Barn. Bring Matanuska history home with you!
