The Anchorage Downtown Partnership’s annual Summer Solstice Festival is coming up June 20th, 2020 from 12:00pm – 7:00pm. Taking place on 4th Avenue downtown from C to L Street. The Summer Solstice Festival is a family friendly event that hosts a variety of entertainment, food, music, competitions, bouncy houses,  and much more. The event has grown steadily in the last few years, with more than 60 different vendors and an attendance of over 10,000 attendees from all over. One of the biggest draws is our Hero Games where military, first responders, and athletes throughout the community compete in relay/fitness style competitions. You don’t want to miss the fun!
