Events are what helps keep our neighborhood vital! We host a series of events to uplift Downtown Anchorage as the city’s epicenter of arts, culture, and local commerce, and to help spur economic activity for Downtown Anchorage businesses.

Our event series helps attract an annual average of over 65,000+ people in non-resident foot traffic throughout the summer, fall, and winter. We know that creating opportunities for the community to gather in celebration and joy not only makes our neighborhood a more vibrant and lively place to be, but also has a direct and positive impact on economic activity for our city’s small business owners!

Get Involved with ADP's Events

There are a variety of ways your business(es) or organization(s) can participate in Anchorage Downtown Partnership events. From Downtown storefront direct participation, to being a vendor at one of our annual signature events, to fiscal sponsorship — we are always looking to collaborate with others and make our events even bigger and better than before, so more people will know about our unique, vibrant, and happening neighborhood.

Our events are funded primarily through sponsorship dollars and community support. Our status as a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization allows charitable contributions from sponsors to be tax-deductible.
