The Merry Merchant Campaign:
Campaign includes: Munch, Mobile Passport, & Facebook Marketplace Group
One of the Chamber’s most popular events of the year! The Merry Merchant Munch provides opportunities for local businesses to jumpstart the holiday shopping season by inviting customers to their open houses with treats, decorations and holiday spirit. An Official MMM Guide is distributed to all addresses in the Chugiak-Eagle River area. Businesses gain recognition and prizes for various categories of décor, treats, and holiday spirit. Community participants may compete in a Gingerbread Contest and win prizes for visiting our local stores with their “munch map”.
For the last few years this event has evolved into including a Mobile Passport and Facebook Marketplace Group in response to the global pandemic. With the additional activities, the Chamber has been able to adjust and be flexible, while still delivering a fun, small business-oriented event!
The Merry Merchant Munch is scheduled for the first weekend in December. The 2022 event is scheduled for December 2nd & 3rd.
The Winter Wonderland Celebration & Tree Lighting Ceremony is scheduled for the First Friday of December.
The 2022 Event is scheduled for Friday December 2nd.
FREE COMMUNITY EVENT: School Choirs, Friendly Vendors handing our sweet treats & warm drinks, santa, sleigh rides, and More!
