This site has reached capacity. Thus we are not able to accept any more new members for the 2021 Anchorage Feast site.
For the sixth time, Anchorage will celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles as a "specialty site" in 2021. The Lakefront Anchorage Hotel will host the 150 to 200 expected attendees.
Set on the shore of Lake Spenard next to Lake Hood, The Lakefront Anchorage is the only hotel in Anchorage that is located on a lake. This hotel has the Alaska feel to it and conveniently located near the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, with downtown Anchorage just four miles away. Daily flightseeing and fishing pickups from the hotel dock are available and also gaze at floatplanes with the majestic Chugach Mountains in the background.
Lake Hood is the largest seaplane base in the world, with some 250 planes landing each day on the lake. Anchorage offers the convenience of nearby recreational and cultural activities. Wildlife viewing, fishing, hiking, biking and cross-country ski trails are minutes from downtown. There is a myriad of wilderness and outdoor adventures, including some of the world's most famous fishing and wildlife areas: Kenai National Moose Range, Kenai River, Prince William Sound, Denali National Park, Katmai National Park, Alaska Botanical Garden, Ben Boeke & Dempsey Anderson Ice Arenas, Lake Hood Air Harbor, Hilltop, Alyeska and Alpenglow Ski Areas, and the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge. At this time, Church sponsored activities have not been finalized, but group activities will be arranged.
Warning: We expect this site to quickly fill up due to limited meeting hall capacity. Do not make travel arrangement till you have been approved. Also, do not make hotel reservations until you have been approved.
Registration: Since this is a “specialty site” and primarily a self-funded Feast site there will be a $25 per person registration fee except for those who live in Alaska and children under 3 at the time of the Feast. Also included within your hotel room rate there is an $11 rebate per night that goes directly to paying for the meeting space and audio visual costs. Members are required to stay at the Lakefront Anchorage Hotel since they are providing the meeting space. Members who live in Alaska are exempted from this requirement. If you have special dietary needs and must have a kitchen it is recommended you choose another Feast site. Or, you can wait and see if the hotel block fills up and if there is still room in the meeting hall, staying off site can be considered. So, for an off site location to be considered, two items need to be addressed: 1) The church has filled its obligation with the hotel to rent 75 rooms; and 2) There will be enough room for a larger audience in the meeting hall.
Approval: a person is approved automatically upon registration, but will receive instructions via email on how to pay the $25 registration fee per person (Alaskan members exempted from the fee and children under age 3 at the time of the Feast). It is also assumed with approval that members are willing to stay at the Lakefront Anchorage hotel (except for Alaskan members)
