Anchorage Alaska Bed and Breakfast Club members like to share information on upcoming events that our guests would enjoy on their visit to Anchorage. The Anchorage Fur Rendezvous begins February 26 and continues through March 7 of this year. The Fur Rondy is a great way to get out of our houses and enjoy our winter.
The Fur Rondy is a tradition that dates back to the early 1900s when trappers and miners emerged from the Alaska wilderness to trade, socialize and compete in survival-type games.
This year’s ten-day celebration includes a family friendly melodrama (Pirates of the Aleutians: Saloon Girls Gone Wild!), Alaska Native tribal gatherings, World Champion Sled Dog Races, craft markets, the Miners & Trappers Bill, and fur auction. Other events include snowshoe softball tournament, outhouse races, ice bowling and the newly popular Running with the Reindeer—Pamplona style.
Several of our members are close to Downtown, including Big Bear B&B, Camai B&B, Your Home Away From Home B&B and Calla House B&B.
