We have changed it up for 2017. This year AEF will host the AEF Gala instead of the annual AEF Mardi Gras. Join us this year for the 5th event and first gala. We will have a great time with friends while helping to raise funds for Alpine schools and students. The evening includes a great dinner, live music and dancing and much more. This is Alpine’s most anticipated annual event and a guaranteed good time!
Rockin’ Trail Run 5K and Fun Run
The Rockin’ Trail Run is a collaborative event to raise funds to promote physical education for the students of Alpine Union School District. Our committee is made up of community members and representatives from the Alpine Education Foundation, Back Country Land Trust, Joan Macqueen Middle School, Boulder Oaks Elementary, Alpine Elementary, Shadow Hills School, and Creekside Early Learning Center.
Night of the Jack 'O Lanterns
When you feel a cool Autumn chill in the air, you’ll know the Night of the Jack o’ Lanterns is getting near. Held at the Alpine Creek Town Shopping Center, the event features food tasting from the Center’s restaurants and supermarket, a pumpkin carving demonstration by Master Carver, Gene Granata and a pumpkin carving contest for Alpine students and event participants.
Thank you to our food tasting participants Ahi Sushi & Grill, Alpine Beer Company, Barons Market, La Carreta & Mediterraneo. We can’ wait for this year’s event!
Who can resist seeing dozens of pumpkins fly hundreds of feet through the air then come smashing down to the ground? Each year, Alpine hosts the only punkin’ chunkin’ competition in San Diego county, if not the entire state! Teams build custom catapults and trebuchets and compete for cash prizes and glory. AEF’s Punkin’ Chunkin Competition is a great community event for both adults and kids alike. And it’s FREE!
Requests for team entries usually get posted in September so check back on our website for details! Last year’s emcee was Padres broadcast announcer Mark Grant and San Diego County Supervisor Dianne Jacob launched the first pumpkin!
The Alpine Education Foundation hosts the annual President’s Reception to honor and thank their patrons, schools and teachers. The event is by invitation only.
