Pie Auction

This is the chamber’s largest fundraiser for the year! The party always comes with a unique theme at this fun-filled event, local gourmets bake desserts to be auctioned off. Each winning bidder will get to choose their prize package at the end of the night. For this year’s event visit us, here.

Progress Days

Held annually every July since 1958, this is the largest event of the year for our community! Soldotna Progress Days celebrations include a parade, rodeo, family activities, community picnic, and so much more!

Frozen RiverFest

Defy the cold and join us for one of the most unique Beer Festivals around! Every February, Frozen River Fest showcases Alaskan Breweries from around the state! Bundle up for live music, bonfires, food vendors, and a fireworks show above the frozen banks of the Kenai River.

Chamber luncheons

Held the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex. Chamber luncheons feature various speakers and topics that are of interest to the business community. It’s a great way to stay connected and network with fellow business owners and political leaders. We frequently team up with the Kenai Chamber for Joint Luncheons. 

Ribbon cutting

We lead the congratulations when our Soldotna Chamber Members have a Grand Opening, Groundbreaking, or Business Expansion/Rebrand. We arrive with red ribbon and giant scissors in hand ready to celebrate!

St. Patrick's day parade

Join us for our annual parade of shamrocks & leprechauns through our small, snowy town. Sponsored by Sweeny’s Clothing.

Lemonade Day

Lemonade Day is a fun program that teaches youth how to start, own & operate their very own business – a lemonade stand. In early summer, youth in our community have the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship.

Soldotna Christmas in the park

Held the first Saturday of December every year, we welcome Santa and his reindeer to Soldotna Creek Park. We also enjoy live performances, warm drinks, tree lighting, & a chance to take your picture with ol’ St. Nick himself!
