  • BEAR PAW FESTIVAL 2020 - UPDATE as of 5/12/2020


    As the days grow longer and the leaves start to appear we are all reminded of the wonders of summer that are ahead of us. While it may still seem a while out, the 2020 Bear Paw festival is a short 8 weeks away. During these unprecedented times, the Festival Committee and the Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber of Commerce remain cautiously optimistic that the Bear Paw Festival will still occur July 8th-12th. We will continue to work with municipal, state, and federal officials to be sure that our festival events follow proper guidelines and protocols to keep our community healthy, safe, and vibrant. We continue to refine and update our plans as we receive advice from experts.

    There will undoubtedly be festival events changed, moved, or canceled. Protecting the health, safety, and welfare of our community is the Chamber's top priority. Though our festival may look different this year we look forward to continuing to make memories, have fun, and enjoy summer in Alaska together. We will keep you updated as we have more information to share through our facebook page, emails, and website.

  • Welcome to Chugiak-Eagle River - The Most Livable and Unique Community in Alaska! Welcome to Chugiak-Eagle River - The Most Livable and Unique Community in Alaska!


    Nestled between two major river valleys in South-central Alaska, the Chugiak-Eagle River area is surrounded by beautiful Alaska wilderness.  The community is known statewide as the gateway to Chugach State Park, 495 thousand acres of rugged untouched terrain, and home to brown and black bear, moose, wolves, wolverine, lynx, fox, porcupine, beaver, spawning salmon, and a wide variety of birds including the majestic Bald Eagle.  It is a place where people have the unique opportunity to blend a community lifestyle, and reside in close proximity to an urban area. Additionally, residents and visitors enjoy the experience of pristine wilderness that exists right at the edge of the Last Frontier.

    Downtown Eagle River and business areas in Chugiak/Peters Creek have a variety of shops providing all the necessary amenities for a quality lifestyle.  Most all goods and services are available locally, but if you can't find that "special something," the downtown area of Anchorage is located approximately 12 miles to the south.  The community is connected with Anchorage via a modern fully lit six-lane highway which traverses natural and scenic military lands. To the North, approximately 20 miles away, The Mat-Su (Matanuska Susitna) Borough is full of adventures and home to Wasilla, Alaska’s fastest growing area.
