Hometown Holiday Kick-off

Join the Cordova Chamber of Commerce in kicking off the holiday season at its new and improved Hometown Holiday Kick-off event. Come together with us on Main Street in front of the Cordova Center to share some holiday cheer while enjoying hot cocoa, singing carols and watching Santa arrive on his sleigh to light the Big Tree.

After the tree lighting, head over to Mt. Eccles Elementary School for the Annual Bidarki Bazaar to find great handcrafts and local vendors who have just the right thing for your Christmas shopping list.

Moonlight Madness

The merchants of Cordova get a bit of “Moonlight Madness” this time of year and keep late hours on the Friday nights before Christmas to give Cordovans extra chances to find that perfect gift. Be sure to Shop Cordova First this holiday season and do your shopping with your local merchants who support your community! Join in the holiday shopping fun on the following Friday evenings from 6-9pm, unless otherwise noted:

November 30,  December 7,  December 14,  December 21

Shop Cordova First Passports

Carry around one of these handy booklets throughout the holiday season, and get a stamp for each local retail purchase you make. Then turn the Passport in to the Chamber by January 1st, and you could be a WINNER! For every $20 worth of local spending in your Passport, you’ll get an entry to win a $300 gift certificate from Points North Heli Adventures (have you seen their amazing puffy coats?!), dinner from the chef out at Orca Lodge, a free family membership to Bidarki Recreation Center and Bob Korn Pool, a Copper River Fleece Gift Certificate, Cordova Electric Cooperative credit, or other awesome prize!

Shop Cordova First Passports will be distributed at the November 17th Saturday Market, the Holiday Kick-off on November 30th, and at the Bidarki Holiday Bazaar November 30th and December 1st, and at the Chamber office during normal business hours.
