Anchorage Market & Festival strives to provide the Anchorage community and its visitors with a summer weekly attraction featuring a large variety of Alaskan arts and crafts, food and imports at reasonable prices; enhance the quality of life of Anchorage residents, visitors and vendors; and enhance the reputation of Anchorage by creating an atmosphere of a carnival or fair, designed for the enjoyment of adults and children of all ages ("the Intended Atmosphere and Use"); to provide Vendors with a low cost, premier location which affords them an opportunity to showcase and display their products to a broad base of consumers and potential consumers, both local and long distance; and, to make productive use on weekends of Anchorage's downtown parking facilities.
This mission statement (The "Anchorage Market & Festival Mission") and the Intended Atmosphere and Use are the primary purposes of Anchorage Market & Festival. In the interest of the Market and its participants, any other purpose, advantage, or benefit is secondary and is subordinate to the primary purposes.
