• Community events in Valdez are held throughout the year and vary based on the season. A few of the most notable events are the annual Halibut and Silver Salmon Derbies, Gold Rush Days, and the Ice Climbing Festival. School activities- from sports to music events- are a large part of the community and the buildings are utilized by the City and various organizations to host events.

    A more extensive list of community events is available on the Valdez Visitor Center website. The City of Valdez updates their Parks and Recreation site every month with a list of city-sponsored events taking place around town, as well as a list of movies premiering at the Civic Center.  The community also has an active Arts Council that works to bring different performers into town throughout the year. School events are posted on the main web pages for each of the buildings.
