2023 Tee-Shirt Design

Get ready, Fairbanks! The 2023 Midnight Sun Festival presented by TOTE is right around the corner, and we are so thankful we received so many creative designs for our tee shirt contest!

Our winning design this year is by Emily Coppinger who explained, "The logo captures all we love about Alaskan summers and time spent under the midnight sun. Some choose to hike and climb mountains; some choose to float the Chena or fish; and some choose to explore downtown and go to all of the events hosted in town - including the beloved Midnight Sun Festival. The logo shows how lucky we are that our city is surrounded by such beauty; and how the endless sunlight allows for much to be explored. I feature 2nd Ave and the Golden Heart Plaza Clock Tower in my design - both of which are iconic to Downtown, and are venue to the festival."

Thank you, 2023 sponsors!
