Battle of the Bands is this year's theme for the 81st Fairbanks International Bonspiel!
Curlers: Deadline for signing up for a curling team is Monday night, March 28 @ 11:59pm. Call some friends, create your teams, and collect your costumes for this epic annual event! Team tickets are $320 USD or $80 USD for an individual. It's a traditional bonspiel, meaning that the teams are gender-specific. Men's & Women's teams only - no mixed teams. Awesome prizes, delicious food, lots of bands, and tons of fun are all just bonuses added to the round-the-clock curling!
Not curling? Just coming for the epic party? We will be open to the public the entire duration of the event. Come on down and hang out in our warm spectator viewing area, have a drink at the bar and enjoy some food by Alaskana Kitchen!
