Wild Su Feast 2021

Online Feast Event Series
Susitna Watershed Cookbook
November 19th - December 3rd



Susitna River Coalition’s Wild Su Feast is a joyous event that celebrates the wild foods of the Susitna River Watershed and the communities that depend on them. In other years of this 5th annual event, we have held a cooking competition with foods that grew, flew, walked, or swam in the Susitna Watershed. Some of past delicious entries have included caribou frankfurters, blueberry bear, and Kahiltna birch syrup ice cream. 





In 2021 we are continuing our Virtual celebration! We will be holding a drawing with prizes, collecting recipes and images from YOU to create the 2021 Susitna Watershed Cookbook, and holding a series of online events with local food producers to connect and inspire us all.


The “Feast” will run from November 19th through December 3th. Instead of competing in categories, participants will earn entries into four grand prize drawings for gift cards to local restaurants and businesses in the Susitna Valley!

Each participant must REGISTER and then will have the opportunity to throw their name into the “drawing bowl” a number of times. Participants will earn an entry into the final drawing for each of the following activities (participants are able to earn a total of 10 entries each - though only one prize per participant):
