Late summer afternoons have Pie & Coffee all written on them. We’ve got it covered! Before long the picnic tables in the front will be piled high again with snow (we hope!); sitting at them – savoring forkfuls of berry pie while letting the sun warm your skin and watching the street scene downtown – will be but a buttery-beautiful summer memory. Ahhhh… summer!

We always recommend double checking with the particular venue/host organization to verify all events and happenings are still a ‘go.’ Things change fast…sometimes faster that we can update! Good places to find event information for Talkeetna – besides right here! – are the Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce Calendar of Events page and KTNA’s website under Today’s Announcements.
 
Take care!
