North by North Festival

Alaska is commemorating an important milestone this year, our 150th anniversary as the heart of America’s Arctic. The world is slowly coming to grips in understanding the significance of the Arctic, and Alaska’s role in the Arctic, as a region of peace and partnership, of emerging importance with the potential for considerable impact on global climate, potential for new discovery, new shipping routes and colossal potential for economic and resource development.
