Roslyn Moosefest This Weekend

MoosefestThe Roslyn Moosefest is the annual fan festival for the 1990’s television show Northern Exposure. For those that do not remember Northern Exposure, the show was about a newly graduated doctor who has to start a practice in a small Alaskan town. While the town in the show was in Alaska, it was actually filmed in Roslyn Washington.

The Moosefest this year (2011) is informal (every other year is informal). Thus there is no scheduled events other than a gathering of approximately 30-40 Northern Exposure fans in Roslyn. This is how it is described on the official website (see first link above):

Informal Moosefest 2011 is the off-year without an organized Northern Exposure fan festival. Keeping with the last-full-weekend in July tradition, it will be July 29-31, 2011. The only activities at an informal Moosefest are hanging out and being reminded “There is no plan”. But then, there is no registration cost either. The Moosefest Committee and whatever fans feel like joining us that weekend hang out in Roslyn. There generally are 30 to 40 fans that show up. We live “in the moment” on what to do next: eat, watch episodes, visit filming sites, drink, talk, sleep or something else. All are welcome!

If you are interested in going, I am sure you can contact the organizers through their contact page or just show up in Roslyn and track down fellow Northern Exposure fans.

Logging can be found by going to Roslyn Rooms.
