Musher's Banquet Tickets

Iditarod Musher's Banquet in Anchorage

Advance Reservation Recommended: Anchorage Musher's Banquet Tickets

The Musher's Banquet is held every year on Thursday - two days before the race start - at the newly build Dena’ina Center in downtown Anchorage. This is your chance to get up close and personal to the scene, talk to the Iditarod musher, take pictures and collect autographs. A dinner is included in the ticket price. During the banquet musher’s usually thank and introduce their sponsors and draw starting numbers from a boot. The order in which musher’s pick numbers from the boot is determined by the order in which musher signed up for the race. This banquet draws yearly a crowd of nearly 2000 spectators into the Dena'ina Center. The doors are opening around 4:00 pm for "Meet and Greet" and the dinner begin at 6:00 pm. Our package tours are including tickets - including dinner - for this event.
