2022 Bear Paw Festival
Newsletter #6

The Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber of Commerce is Pleased to Bring You the 37th Annual Bear Paw Festival!

We had a record year in 2021 for the Bear Paw Festival. Attendance was up, weather was spectacular, people were back out in the world and so much fun was had! Our Organization is very excited to be working with our wonderful Sponsors, Partners, Volunteers and Community again for our 2022 Festival.

There are a lot of moving parts in preparation with the Festival. Stay tuned each Monday for our Bear Paw Festival Newsletter as we provide updates, open-up event registrations and help you prepare for this Family-Friendly Festival!
