Anchorage Civic Club

Some of the best things about living in Anchorage, Kentucky, are its wonderful community events like the Anchorage Fourth of July Parade and Picnic, Anchorfest and Winter Bowl cook-off. These events and others help define the character of Anchorage, facilitate neighbors getting to know one another and create the warm sense of community we enjoy.

Anchorage Civic Club

These activities and other services are provided to the citizens of Anchorage by the Anchorage Civic Club, which was founded in 1914 by I. W. Bernheim (yes, of Bernheim Forest fame) and is operated by a board of 18 Anchorage residents who are elected to 3-year terms. These neighbors work hard, mostly behind the scenes, to host the following events for all Anchorage neighbors:

  • Winter Bowl — a community cook-off — and Town Hall Meeting
  • Croquet & Rose’
  • 3rd of July fireworks — co-sponsored with Owl Creek Country Club
  • Firecracker 5K/10K
  • 4th of July Parade and Picnic
  • The Anchorage Dog Show — bi-annually on even years
  • Anchorfest
  • Papa’s Pumpkin Patch — with Evergreen Realty
  • Turkey Trot 5K/10K
  • Light Up Anchorage


Other services provided by the civic club include a Welcome Program for new residents, production of the Anchorage Directory (every other year on odd years), decorating City Hall, the anchor and the gazebo for various holidays and more. All Anchorage residents are encouraged to join the club. Annual dues are only $25. Members receive discounted prices on events and a free directory every other year. Membership forms can be downloaded from the Civic Club Website or by emailing TheAnchorageCivicClub@gmail.com.
