Participate in the 5th annual creative placemaking initiative “Dinner at the Beach” at Bishop’s Beach Park Pavilion on June 17th.
Each year Bunnell Street Arts Center leads in Homer’s premiere creative placemaking event. The event aims to rethink how we use our shared public spaces by hosting a five-course sit-down dinner in an unconventional public space. This year we will serve Kachemak Bay seafood bouillabaisse to 100 dinner guests while we celebrate the revitalization of Bishop’s Beach Park.
Bishop’s Beach Park and pavilion has benefited from much change since 2012. Old Town neighbors and the City of Homer have worked together to initiate better park usage of the public space. Dinner at the Beach celebrates the many beautification efforts led by Bunnell Street Arts Center, Old Town neighbors and the City of Homer; a hand painted “Welcome to Bishop’s Beach Park” sign, a newly painted public pavilion, a bike rake, a paved and lined parking lot, and a Loon sculpture by Alaskan artist Rachelle Dowdy. There is also new signage installed that reflects better beach use practices regarding vehicle access, and pedestrian usage that protects the natural habitat of the beach itself.
Park at Islands & Ocean Visitor Center only.
