UAF’s Festival of Native Arts was listed on the American Bus Association’s 2014 Top 100 Events list. The association’s Top 100 Events in North America is an annual compendium of the best events for group travel in the United States and Canada. Each spring, a committee of ABA-member motorcoach and tour operators selects the Top 100 Events for the subsequent year; the list is unveiled in September. Winners are chosen from hundreds of celebrations, festivals, fairs, commemorative events and more that have been nominated by ABA members.
The 41st Annual Festival of Native Arts will take place Feb. 27, 28, and March 1, 2014. Performance and vendor applications will be available soon after the students decide on the 2014 theme. Check out the FNA website at http://fna.community.uaf.edu for more information.
The Top 100 Events receive worldwide attention via the media–television, radio,and print–such as USA Today and CNN. ABA distributes some 10,000 copies of the Top 100 Events in North America magazine, featuring the winners, to all of its members and to thousands of travelers worldwide.
