In less than a week, our favorite events begin just in time to help us get through the toughest part of winter — Fur Rondezvous winter festival and Iditarod Sled Dog Race. Fur Rondezvous has been an annual tradition in Anchorage since the mid 1930s when the town started organizing fun activities to coincide with the miners and trappers coming to town with their yield. Iditarod is the most famous sled dog race in the world, attracting mushers and spectators from around the globe. Downtown Anchorage will be transformed into a playground with a carnival, contests, snow sculptures, and a sled dog trail running down 4th Avenue. Our studio happens to be on 4th Avenue, and we will be open during the busiest times of the festivities. There will also be a craft fair inside our building — the 4th Avenue Market Place. Stop by and check out the view of the carnival (hopefully Denali will be visible as well), to see the newest oil paintings and prints, and to have some home-baked cookies while you warm up between events. We are located in Suite 4 of the 4th Avenue Market Place, which is in the NW corner inside the building.
When: February 24-25, Saturday and Sunday, 11-6pm AND March 3, Saturday, 10-5pm.
Where: 4th Avenue Market Place, 333 W 4th Avenue, Suite 4. Inside the building in the NW corner.
