Fodor's Review

Two popular events take place in Dalton City, a gold rush–era town set created for the 1991 Disney film White Fang that was relocated to the Southeast Alaska State Fairgrounds. The homespun Southeast Alaska State Fair, a four-day event that starts during the last week of July, and the two-day Great Alaska Craft Beer and Homebrew Festival that unfolds in late May. The fair amuses attendees with a logging show and a fisherman's rodeo, along with live music, carousel rides, local cuisine, Native dancing, and displays of art and photography. The beer festival, known locally as Brewfest, offers a five-course gourmet brewers' dinner, beer-tasting sessions, a home-brew competition, and live music. Tickets, which sell out quickly, go on sale in early February.
