The chill of fall is in the air, which means Alaska’s busiest travel season is coming to a close. Now it’s time for locals to take in all the fall festivities across the state to celebrate the last few weeks of snow-free fun.


Jesse Carlstrom with Travel Alaska joined Daybreak to give a rundown on several upcoming festivals from Sitka to Fairbanks.


    • Make it Alaskan Festival: (Oct. 2-4)

      Free arts and crafts event in Anchorage that includes live music, food and entertainment.
