14th Annual Fireweed Festival

Contributed by Debbie Filter

The Alaskan Summer is upon us in all its glory! That means “Festival Time” to Trapper Creek and communities all up and down the highways!

The 14th Annual Fireweed Festival will be in 'full bloom' on July 20th! Bring your family, friends and out-of-state visitors to this FREE and fun family friendly event!

Our grass-roots event will begin at 11:00 AM and will wrap up around 8:00 PM.

Plan to spend a few hours, or all day, cruising in amongst the local handmade craft and delicious food booths! Learn about the local plants and get involved in the hands-on activities!! A delightful combination of local musicians, budding artists and seasoned performers will entertain you all day long!

We will be raffling off an awesome backyard swimming pool with all the necessary accessories AND a beautiful gas/charcoal BBQ!! Other activities include the Silent Auction, Split the Pot and Rippies! WOWZA!

The Trapper Creek Community Services Assoc. and Fireweed Festival Committee enjoy providing this amazing day in our park for your enjoyment!

Please come spend this Summer day with us!

The festival is sponsored by the Trapper Creek Community Services Assoc. Inc. a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization, Moores Hardware in Talkeetna and Elise Dooley of Trapper Creek
