About Festivals in Alaska

No matter what season they find themselves in, Alaskan visitors and residents alike will always have something fun to look forward to. Ranging from large and broad to small and specific, the festivals in Alaska truly are numerous and rich in culture.

By far the most well-attended annual event, the Alaskan State Fair (held the end of August-early September) features entertainment, food, and family fun. For the more creative-minded individuals, art-centered events such as the Ketchikan Wearable Arts Show, which boasts a variety of unique and even odd creations that will be modeled on the runway, and the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, featuring classes and workshops for all ages and skill levels, are a must-go. For the music lovers out there, the Alaska Music Festivals are also diverse, ranging from Jazz to Bluegrass to the Warped Tour and more.

Alaska events are not limited to the summer months, either. One of Alaska's most popular festivals, the Fur Rendezvous, occurs every February in Anchorage, hosting an exciting string of events from sled-dog racing to snow sculpting, snowshoe softball, and more. Other winter events include: Susitna 100 Miles & Little Su 50k and the Talkeetna Winterfest.
