During our April session the students heard from Jo Kuchle from CSG, Inc. about the Alaska Health Directive and the importance of making decisions about your future care as soon as possible. Each student was also challenged to make a 5-minute presentation about a leader who had influenced them. They did a marvelous job of thoughtfully recounting the traits of leaders who had been models and mentors, a reminder for us all that we have the ability to make a difference in the lives of the people around us each and every day.

Golden Days 2021
Saturday, July 17th - Sunday, July 25th

Golden Days will be returning to some beloved traditions this year while still incorporating some of our safe & responsible events from last year. We are excited for the opportunities to gather, celebrate, and Dream Golden Dreams!
Date: Saturday, July 24th
Time: 10am - 1pm
Location: The Tanana Valley State Fairgrounds

Last year was such a great success that we decided that again in 2021 our Grande Parade will take place in reverse!

That's right, we are putting on a REVERSE PARADE, which means instead of lining the streets of the parade route, you'll get to cruise safely through the Tanana Valley State Fairgrounds and greet floats as you pass. As always, we'll have the best of Fairbanks on hand, from the hometown heroes of Ft. Wainwright and Eielson to local bands and entertainers, bringing the Fairbanks flair that makes this town a great place to live and play. 
Interested in being in the parade? Businesses, non-profits, campaign groups and others can register now!
Date: Saturday, July 24th
Time: 12pm - 7pm
Location: Downtown Fairbanks

That's right! We are bringing the Street Fair back home to the heart of our Golden Heart City! We will be spreading out to allow more space for our community to shop your favorite vendors, visit info booths, and scarf down the best food the summer has to offer! We'll be releasing a complete guide to the Street Fair with map and details as soon as we can, so check back often.
Vendor registration is open now.
Date: Sunday, July 25th
Time: 10am
Location: Downtown Fairbanks

8,000 ducks will be released near the Wendell Street Bridge and race down the Chena River to the finish line at Cushman Street Bridge. Stay tuned for all ticket sale locations and dates to claim your lucky duck!
