Alaska Day Keystone Kops

Keystone Kops first appeared in 1912 in silent slapstick films. They were humorously incompetent policemen. Our lovely Alaska Day Keystone Kops draw from that.

Each year we hold a ceremony to swear in the years' Kops on the lawn of the Pioneer home, unofficially kicking off the festival. If you are interested in being a Keystone Kop for this year's festival click here.
