The Alaska Celtic Pipes & Drums (ACP&D) is a family-oriented pipe band established in 2005 in the Eagle River - Matanuska Valley area of Southcentral Alaska. Band members range from veteran to student pipers and drummers.

In addition to performing throughout the year at parades, graduations, festivals and private engagements, the band currently competes in Grade 4 contests, under the direction of Pipe Major Gary Craig. Each Winter, the band hosts its annual “Snowflake Concert” which showcases some of band’s repertoire. The band's uniform kilt is the Irish National Tartan.

The ACP&D is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, and is very active in community youth education. The Band holds several piping and drumming workshops throughout the year, and also offers free piping and drumming lessons.
