Not sure what is scarier: our ‘ghosts’ hanging throughout the dining room or the extreme slow-down of business that is October. Bwaaaaa-ha-ha-ha-haaaaaaa! Well, I’m not too scared. The town’s calendar offers plenty of distraction and chances to get out and mingle with the living. And when you feel a need to replenish the fuel tank, swing in Tuesday for our first Beignet Day! Yes… brought to you by our very own resident Louisiana-born baker. Take THAT, Donut Day!

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!
