The Go Winter! Expo has been postponed for this year due to construction at the Carlson Center. The event, sponsored by Camper Valley RV, will now take place on October 25-26, 2025. It focuses on winter in Alaska and how to get through it healthy, safely, and sanely while having some fun along the way. If you plan on spending the winter in Fairbanks, you need to be at Go Winter! Co-sponsored by NAPA AutoCare Group.

This will be the 27th year of the Expo, and it has something for everyone to enjoy! Outside activities, snow machines, camping gear, inside activities, health and fitness, tasty treats, nonprofits, car care, home heating, travel ideas, shopping, the Interior Alaska Gun Show, great door prizes, and more… It’ll all be there in one warm location.

Admission is $5 (children 12 and under are free), and Sunday is free for military personnel with ID or anyone who brings two cans of food for the Food Bank.

If you are a vendor looking to get involved in the 2025 event, the Go Winter! Expo is a prime marketing opportunity for your business to take advantage of winter. The 2023 event had over 100 participating businesses and a two-day public attendance of over 4,000. Go Winter! is a great place to jumpstart your winter business. Scroll down for more information.

Interior Alaska Gun Show

We added the Interior Alaska Gun Show in 2013, and it was a wonderful addition to the Expo! The Interior Alaska Gun Show, started in 2011, is the most widely attended gun show in the Interior. The show is put on in support of the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Conservation Association, which is an organization dedicated to improving wildlife, habitat, and hunting opportunities throughout the state of Alaska.

The show has tremendous variety, with vendors from the Fairbanks and North Pole communities as well as many others, some traveling from as far away as the Kenai Peninsula. You’ll find more than 80 tables of goods, services, and merchandise related to firearms, hunting, fishing, survival, and outdoor sporting pursuits.

Come out and support the gun community, helping businesses that are furthering your 2nd Amendment rights, all while exercising them yourself and having a great time to boot! If you are a vendor interested in a space in the gun show portion of the event, please contact Michael Dukes at (907) 378-8499.

The Go Winter! Expo represents many local and statewide businesses. If you have a product or service that can help people enjoy winter, Go Winter! is designed to help you get the word out!
