At Alaska Business, we are aware of many business and community events taking place around the state. So below we’re happy to provide our readers with as much information as we can about statewide plays, festivals, fundraisers, workshops, lectures, debates, conferences, conventions, business meetings, and whatever else may pique our interest—or yours.
Because of public efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and following the guidance of national and local leaders, many events are cancelled, postponed, or revamped for online attendance; we are keeping this calendar updated as we are made aware of changes.
As efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 are ongoing, please follow the health and safety advice of local leaders, including wearing face coverings and practicing social distancing; be conscientious and prioritize your safety and the safety of others.
