Salsa in the Park

Salsa in the Park is back for its fourth year! Join Anaya Latin Dance and the Anchorage Downtown Partnership this summer for free Latin dancing and music in Town Square, the heart of Downtown Anchorage! The event takes place on Saturdays, June 19th to August 7th, from 1-4 pm, with dance instruction during the first hour and social dancing to follow. Over the course of the summer we will have several guests helping us to enliven the event and activate Town Square!

Check the Facebook event for updated information and check out our schedule of events below:

NOTE: OUR SATURDAY, JULY 24th EVENT IS CANCELLED DUE TO RAINY WEATHER!
Please follow our Facebook page for updates!

This year we will have a small dance floor available in the park for those that prefer a smooth surface, thanks to our friends at Humpy’s, where salsa participants can also receive a free soft serve ice cream when mentioning “Salsa in the Park”, and a special discount on food and drinks when signing up for their rewards programs.

Please note that this event will follow current CDC and municipal recommendations on COVID safety – anyone who is sick, showing symptoms consistent with Covid-19, has had a fever in the past 72 hours, or has traveled in the past 14 days should not participate. If you are part of a high-risk population, please do not enter the dance space. Please bring your own hand sanitizer (some will also be provided), a bottle of water for yourself, and a partner if desired! 

This event is family-friendly and open to all. Come down and enjoy the sunshine with us!
