This summer marks the launch of Sitka Fest!: an arts, culture and science festival running from late-May through August. Taking place on and around the Sheldon Jackson campus, the festival features programs by several campus partners, including the Sitka Summer Music Festival, Island Institute, Sitka Fine Arts Camp, Sitka Sound Science Center, Native Jazz Workshop, Sitka Seafood Festival, Sitka Fellows Program, TEDx Sitka and the Sheldon Jackson Museum. The mission of the festival is to celebrate Sitka's rich cultural heritage and promote the wide range of summer programs, ranging from music and dance concerts to theater productions, special exhibitions, guest lectures, food tastings and education programs for all ages.

Sitka Fest is spearheaded by Alaska Arts Southeast and made possible by the thousands of volunteer hours and donations that Sitkans continue to pour into the revitalization of the historic Sheldon Jackson campus. In addition, the festival is funded in part by an "Our Town" grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and support from the Alaska State Council on the Arts.

Tickets for Sitka Fest! events will be available at Old Harbor Books.
