Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, once said, “The only thing that is constant is change.” Happy to report on a change that creates constancy for something very near and dear to the hearts of those living in & around Trapper Creek, Alaska!
Our community is blessed with a group of visionaries who saw fit to generate a park, cemetery, ski trail and community building which serves as the hub of this small town along the Park’s Highway. In fact this beautiful park itself, was the source for the inspiration that our Fireweed Festival was born from.
Now in its 11th year, we are celebrating a merger with the Trapper Creek Community Services Association (TCCSA) which, is a nonprofit that oversees and maintains the park facilities as well as organizing the annual winter Cabin Fever Reliever. So, it is a perfect fit to join forces & resources for a structure that will support the longevity of both the summer & winter gatherings.
In fact, this year we are all excited by the generous contributions of both TCCSA and Paramount Cycles for offering a top end fat tire bike that will be raffled off to raise funds for next year’s festival!
Along with supporting art, music & community, a primary theme is connecting with nature. This grass roots feeling came to fruition and has remained fruitful for the last 11 years because of the volunteers that put their hard work, hearts and souls into such a wonderful endeavor. A desire to bring all of the amazing artists and crafters together in one lovely gathering, surrounded by nature and enveloped in the sounds of the talented musicians of our community.
We hope that folks will come join us for a truly great summer time party in the Park!
