For everyone that wishes to enjoy a wide range of Community Events, Skagway has it all. Throughout the year our small community (population 1036 in 2014 census estimate) puts on a host of events with the help of many Skagway volunteers!
Lemonade Day Alaska
Lemonade Day Alaska is a statewide, community-based, hands-on, youth event celebrating the spirit of entrepreneurship. The Lemonade Day Alaska program teaches children how to plan, prep, and run their own business – a lemonade stand! Participants keep and decide what to do with the money that they earn, and we encourage them to think about “saving, spending, and sharing” a little too!
We’re proud to share that in 2019, Alaskan participants averaged revenue of $210 per stand with a profit of $155. In one day this translated to:
$480,750 earned by youth entrepreneurs for saving and spending
$304,255 in profit and $125,480 donated to charities
