Smoke Free Policy

The policy set forth is effective June 19, 2024

The Tanana Valley State Fairgrounds is smoke-free. Smoking is not permitted anywhere within the fenced common areas of the fairground’s property. Smoking is also not permitted within 40 feet of the main gated entrances to the Fair.

Designated smoking areas will be established and located at a minimum distance of 40 feet outside the main gated entrances to the Fair and behind the Beer Garden.

“Smoke–free” refers to an environment that is free of smoke from, among other things, tobacco products and/or vapors from electronic smoking devices.

“Smoke” or “smoking” means and includes carrying, holding, inhaling, or exhaling the smoke of a lighted pipe, cigar, cigarette, or plant material, or of any other lighted or heated smoking equipment. “Smoking” also includes the use of an e-cigarette which creates a vapor, in any manner or in any form, or the use of any oral smoking device.

“No Smoking” signage will be clearly posted at all entrances and other prominent places.

Compliance with the smoke-free fair policy is mandatory for all employees, exhibitors, vendors, volunteers, performers, and patrons visiting the fair. Employees who violate this policy are subject to disciplinary action.
