Bear Paw Festival

July 10th - July 14th, 2019

The Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber of Commerce is pleased to bring you the 34th Annual Bear Paw Festival!

The Theme this year is "Shake, Rattle and Rebuild."

November 30, 2019 will be remembered as a day that transformed and bound-together our community. The earthquake is one of the most impactful events in our history, and the Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber of Commerce could not hold our Festival without acknowledging those affected. In that spirit, we take this opportunity to celebrate the resiliency and generosity of spirit our community has shown over these past months. Our sincerest hope is the 34 th annual Bear Paw Festival can bring us together and help restore some sense normalcy.

A huge thank you to our sponsors, businesses, volunteers, and individuals who make this event possible year-to-year and who make our community the most fun and livable community in the state.

Stay tuned for more information, festival events and community stories about the November 30th Earthquake in our Newsletters and during the Festival!

We are looking forward to coming together as a community to celebrate our successes, acknowledge the work we still have to do, and to enjoy a week in July that makes the Chugiak-Eagle River area the best place to call home.
