The new year is approaching quickly and there are a handful of upcoming events around Alaska you absolutely MUST participate in. From Fur Rondy to the Ice Art Championships, Alaska hosts a whole range of exciting and popular events for both its locals and its tourists, but there are plenty of lesser known events around the state that you really shouldn’t miss during the first couple months of the new year. Make time in your schedule early on in 2016 to hit up some of these great events around the state. If you know of any other must-do events in the first few months of the new year, leave a note in the comments so everyone gets a chance to enjoy.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Have you done any of these things before? What was your experience like? Is there anything else you would add to this list?
Casea Peterson grew up archery hunting, fishing, and camping throughout the Pacific Northwest. Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
