Alyeska Blueberry Festival

Blueberry Festival

August in Alaska means there’s still plenty of summer left to enjoy at Alyeska Resort. One of the best ways to get outside and spend time with your family is by picking blueberries, celebrating blueberries and being surrounded by like-minded blueberry enthusiasts in the Chugach Mountains! These delectable little morsels pack a flavorful punch and luckily for us, they grow plentiful on Alaska’s mountains. Stay the night at Alyeska and take advantage of the annual Blueberry-themed event with vendors, live music, a pie-eating contest, a kid zone, and of course, berry picking!

New for 2023, the festival location is shifting from the hotel to the Daylodge base area. Parking is limited, so please consider carpooling to the festival. Please leave your dog at home.

Enjoy one of the most anticipated weekends of the season without the drive!  Book the Blueberry Festival Package and enjoy:

  • Overnight accommodations at Alyeska Resort
  • One (1) voucher redeemable for a blueberry pie at Forte Restaurant host stand (pie will be packaged to go)
