Peratrovich Park sits at the epicenter of downtown’s core on the corner of 4th Avenue and E Street. Named after civil rights activist Elizabeth Peratrovich of the Tlingit Nation. Peratrovich worked for Alaska Native equality and is credited with the passage of the Anti-Discrimination Act of 1945, the first anti-discrimination law in the United States. Since 1997, Anchorage Downtown Partnership has facilitated programming in the park with partnership with Anchorage Parks & Recreation. Guided by a vision to create a welcoming, clean, safe and vibrant environment, we program multiple concert series daily throughout the summer and additional family-friendly during some of our annual summer events. Our safety and maintenance ambassadors facilitate a safe environment daily keeping their eyes and ears out for suspicious behavior or an unclean environment.
Each summer season, Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. hosts Music in the Park, a weekly lunch hour music series. Featuring solo and group acts from all over Alaska, Music in the Park is the smaller scale compliment to our Live After Five Summer Concert Series. Check out the Events Calendar for up to date information about what artists are performing, and head down to Peratrovich Park to enjoy a midday break.
Every Monday throughout the summer months, Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. partners with Fiddle De Dee to host a fun, interactive hour-long concert for the kids. Fiddle De Dee leads the group in a variety of song and dance, all geared towards the younger members of the family. Check out the Events Calendar for specific information, and make sure to stop by and check out the fun!
