Join Anchorage’s historically known Fur Rendezvous! Simply put, Vern Johnson, the founder of Fur Rendezvous found it to be a great idea to create an event to bring the town together for an exciting time to eliminate those winter blues.
Originally a sporting event much like the Olympics and bring the community spirit together for Alaskans, began on Feb. 15 – 17, 1936, featuring major winter sports like skiing, hockey, basketball, as well as boxing and a children’s sled dog race. It became a popular event and became an annual festival every February.
