    LOCATION: Tanana Valley State Fairgrounds - Stay tuned for 2021 Parade Route map.

    This year we're putting on a REVERSE PARADE, which means instead of lining the streets of the parade route, you'll get to cruise safely through the Tanana Valley State Fairgrounds and greet floats as you pass. As always, we'll have the best of Fairbanks on hand, from the hometown heroes of Ft. Wainwright and Eielson to local bands and entertainers, bringing the Fairbanks flair that makes this town a great place to live and play.
