Put on your dancing shoes!
An authentic Alaska community, the surprisingly artsy, coastal town of Cordova lives and breathes fishing. Every July, through this family-friendly festival, local nonprofits and loads of volunteers come together to raise awareness of the region’s rich resources and raise funds to support art opportunities with 2 days of live music, a wild food cook-off, running events and free kids’ activities. There’s also a beer tent, artisan craft fair and lots of fun for all ages at Cordova’s beautiful Mt. Eyak Ski Area. Stay tuned for the live music line up, filled with amateur and professional acts from around the state of Alaska & beyond! This is a fundraising event for Cordova’s arts council: Cordova Arts & Pageants, which brings artists from all over the world to perform for the community of Cordova and share their art in the schools all year long.
