All Alaskan Racing Pigs
All Alaskan Racing Pigs
Sept 21 - Sept 30, 2018
Be A Fan
Pork-belly laughs are a certain result when the All-Alaskan Racing Pigs pay a visit. You may not think of little porkers when sports is the conversation, but these fuzzy little racers will make you reconsider the meaning of “professional athlete.” And “fast food.”
The 100-yard dash and the 50-yard high hurdles come to life as you have never experienced them before. When the runners have four legs the starts are even more exhilarating. When you carry around plenty of padding, you can bump and grind in the corners even more freely. And when you are a cute little pig, well, you can do just about anything you want. It’s just plain funny.
Each team consists of eight porcine racing machines. Racing four at a time, they typically hit top speeds of over 15 miles per hour. They race flat track and high hurdles during every show. Each show concludes with a championship round and four volunteer rooting section leaders cheering their favorite. Included in every show is a special round just for laughs. We surprise you with this one.
We often have a few trainees traveling with the team who are learning the ropes and getting ready to start their racing career. If your timing is right you may be treated to a baby race.
The Famous All-Alaskan Racing Pigs have been making headlines since their beginning in 1987. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner carried a front-page photo and story on the racers on opening day of the Tanana Valley State Fair in Fairbanks, Alaska in August of 1987. Since then they have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, The Oregonian, Seattle Times and Post Intelligencer, and many more leading newspapers. TV and radio have covered the athletes extensively, too, both locally and nationally.
All Alaskan Racing Pigs is brought to the 2014 Central Washington State Fair by our proud sponsor Tree Top!
