April 24, 2021 – After much brainstorming, planning, and deliberation the Girdwood Forest Fair committee has taken decision to opt of of a live fair for 2021. This decision has fallen heavy on our souls and while we desperately want to bring the vibe alive in our park, out of respect for our community, our volunteers, our vendors and our patrons we are choosing an alternative path for 2021. We are committed to keeping the Forest Fair Vibe Alive and are looking forward to the next live Girdwood Forest Fair.
Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate through difficult challenges.
With much Love,
Girdwood Forest Fair Committee
