Alaska shows the best in the state this weekend

October 2, 2013 by  

The Make It Alaskan Festival is on its way this week and is a celebration of all things connected to the state, featuring authentic and unique products to kick off the holiday buying season. No doubt flyer and banner printing companies have been busy promoting this lively selling event to people in the community and the region.

During this festival, people will have the opportunity to browse and shop among more than 200 vendors’ booths, all carrying products manufactured here in Alaska. Guests can expect to see the likes of quilts, smoked salmon, biscotti, log homes, incense, glass items, soap, dog food, paintings, photography, knives, tie-dyed products, and woodwork pieces. All products represented at the event have been hand-manufactured by the vendors.

Aside from the shopping opportunities, people will enjoy Alaskan musicians, such as well-known Anchorage guitarist Scott Ferris, the Eternal Cowboys, and the Button Box Gang. There will be food vendors, flavor samples from Denali Brewing Company, and an assortment of prize draws on the GCI Alaskan Fun Safari.

Admission costs $7 for people over the age of seven, while those younger can attend free of charge. The Make It Alaskan Festival will be held on Friday, October 4 from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Saturday from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, and Sunday from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm at the Sullivan Arena located at 1600 Gambell Street in Anchorage, Alaska.
