Denali Education Center hosts a collection of public events throughout the summer that promote the arts and sciences, featuring artists, naturalists, musicians, yoga teachers, authors, workshops, lectures, films, and educational programs. These events are meant to inspire personal discovery, creativity, and intellectual inquiry.
Many of our public events are free or donation-based, and they highlight the incredible talent, diversity, and depth of knowledge in our small gateway community. All programs are held in the heart of our campus, the Charles Sheldon Center. This post-and-beam building was constructed, and has been maintained, with countless hours of volunteer effort.

2018 Public Events
Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 10 am
Our annual Volunteer Day is a great way to get to know the organization, to meet new people, and to give back to Denali Education Center for all that we do. DEC would not be able to continue to grow and develop as a non-profit without the continued support from our local community. To thank you for all of your hard work, a BBQ lunch is provided.
Denali Farmers & Artisans Market
The Farmers & Artisans Market offers locals and visitors alike the opportunity to buy Alaska-grown produce, as well as baked goods, crafts, and gifts that were made right here in Denali! Our markets often feature local artists, jewelers, potters, knitters, crafters, glass artists, quilters, bakers, and farmers. We invite all growers and makers to participate in the Denali Farmers & Artisans Market – hosted outside of our Charles Sheldon Center (weather permitting).
Registration information is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
