Stop by the UAF booth any time during the fair to get your passport to higher education!

The UAF passport will be back at the fair this year. Throughout the entire fair, pick up your passport at any of the following seven booths:

Passports must be stamped at every booth and then can be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to one of the following: an Alaska Nanooks hockey game (except the Governor's Cup game — UAF vs. UAA), an Alaska Nanooks men's or women's basketball doubleheader, a music department concert or a Theatre UAF production.


UAF Day at the fair is Tuesday, Aug. 6, 1 – 7 p.m.

Bring your UAF PolarExpress card or UAF Alumni Association membership card and receive $1 off adult fair admission.


Books from the Nooks

In cooperation with the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, we will hold a book drive on UAF Day, from 1 to 7 p.m., for new or gently used books. Collected books will be distributed to first-year teachers in local elementary schools to assist them in establishing libraries in their classrooms. For each book donated, you will receive a ticket for a drawing to be held at the end of the day. The winner of the drawing, who need not be present to win, will receive two tickets to a university event of their choice (excluding the chancellor's gala and the UAA vs. UAF hockey games).
