14 Alaskan Harvest Festivals You’ll Want To Visit Year After Year

Fall is such a wonderful time no matter where you live, but in Alaska it is particularly wonderful. The abundance of wild land and the many excellent farmers mean that harvest time is a celebration of fish, berries, and mushrooms from the forests and zuchinnis, pumpkins and tomatoes from the farms. Although in the temperate climates August is high summer, the autumn harvest starts in northern Alaska and fall continues through September and October as you head south. Head to these festivals to celebrate the harvest and the end of the summer work season.
