Wild Su Feast 2020

Online Feast Event Series
Susitna Watershed Cookbook
November 20th - December 4th

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 4th 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, Kahiltna birch syrup ice cream, moose pate, smoked salmon queso dip, perok, pickled fiddlehead ferns, salmon chowder, caribou pot pie, and local pork sliders.





In 2020 we are changing it up! We will be holding a drawing with prizes, collecting recipes and images from YOU to create a Susitna Watershed Cookbook, and holding a series of online events with local food producers to connect and inspire us all.


The “Feast” will last two weeks, running from November 20th through December 4th, intentionally including the Thanksgiving holiday. 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 9 entries each):
