Donate to the Bear Paw Festival

The Festival brings in 30k+ people to the Chugiak-Eagle River area during the 5-day event.

The Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber of Commerce (CERCC) is responsible for putting on the Festival and is not subsidized by any government entities. As a small non-profit organization, the Chamber makes every dollar count and keeps the money local.

Only with the commitment and assistance we receive from within our community can we continue to bring this incredible & unique festival to our area.
