Anchorage Downtown Placemaking

Join Anchorage Downtown Partnership in our efforts to bring positive energy and use to downtown’s parks and public spaces through Anchorage Downtown Placemaking!

Placemaking is a concept that focuses on bringing positive energy and events into the existing public space assets in our community. The Downtown Partnership hopes to facilitate collaborative use of these spaces through inspiration, coordination and reducing existing barriers to entry.

Together with partnering organizations, we have created a program that allows space activation programming to more easily fill the downtown parks: Town Square, Peratrovich and the 5th Ave Rooftop Park, as well as other empty public spaces in downtown: alleyways, vacant store fronts, street corners, etc. You provide the programming, idea or event, we help take care of equipment and logistical needs, as well as offer our expertise in navigating permit requirements, promotion and marketing at an additional cost.

Host a company picnic or small concert, throw a small party or gathering with games and music, or even showcase your business or organization. Take advantage of all that downtown Anchorage has to offer!

Check out all the Placemaking options here: Anchorage Downtown Placemaking.
