Mime Day! August 12, 10AM-4pm
Spenard Farmers Market & Surrounding Construction Corridor
Activities 10AM-2pm | Music & Beer Garden 2-4pm
In August of 1916, Spenard became the 'place to party'. 101 years later, we are keeping that tradition alive.
'Day Of Fun And Frolic Promised' was what the headline in August of 1916 read as Spenard became the 'place to party'. Just over 100 years later, the Mimes of Spenard invite you to come frolic again with music, games, and a whole lot of fun! This free event embraces everything we love about Spenard: fun local businesses, a strong sense of community, lots of great art, and... a dash of the weird of course.
* SHOW UP IN MIME!
Mimes ride free on the Anchorage People Mover today! Don your Mime inspired clothing and head on down to the Spenard Farmers Market!
* CHECK IN AT OUR MIME-UP BOOTH!
Check in at our Mime-Up booth and get your Mime T-shirt, make-up, and your passport to the Mime Day activities located all around the Construction Corridor.
This artful passport will lead you on a fun filled walk to 12 different local Spenard businesses surrounding the Spenard Farmers Market. Get to all 12 businesses on your passport and you'll get a limited edition Mime Day print by Tent City Press and you'll be entered to win a 'Night In Spenard', full of gift certificates to all your favorite places (valued at over $500!)
*STAY & ENJOY
There's local crafters, artists, fresh farmed goodies, food, and music all day at the Farmers Market! We want to celebrate the goodness of our local community here in Spenard during our beautiful Alaskan summer. We'll have our local radio station, KONR Radio 106.1, playing throughout our Passport Art Walk, activities and art pop-ups, and a beer garden hosted by Spenard Roadhouse and more live music from 2-4pm. There's just so much fun to be had!
