Bash Event Overview
The Boating & Beach Bash for People with Disabilities is America’s largest free fun-day for people with special needs, their families, and their caregivers. Now in its 15th year, the Bash as an annual event reaches out to embrace the estimated 20% of Florida residents who live with physical and/or intellectual challenges–disabilities that are seen or unseen.
In Palm Beach County however, 25% have a disability, among the highest number in the nation. A true celebration of diversity, the Boating & Beach Bash demonstrates how a community can honor and salute those among us who struggle each day with unimaginable challenges.
Many of our guests are people often overlooked by society. Their challenges place them outside the mainstream, and many of them are never seen at the mall, the movies or even at a fast-food restaurant. Once a year they are invited into the sunshine for a joy-filled day that celebrates their diversity & embraces them as the unique individuals they are.
Each March, young & old alike, come together with their families and caregivers to beautiful Spanish River Park in Boca Raton, where they are treated as world class VIP’s, from the moment they arrive.
Location & Date for the 2024 Bash
The setting for the Bash is Spanish River Park, located at 3001 North Ocean Boulevard (State Road A1A). The park, Boca’s most beautiful setting for an event like the Bash, is set between the Atlantic Ocean, with its pristine beaches on one side, and the scenic Intracoastal Waterway on the other. The heart of the park boasts grassy picnic areas, covered shelters, walkways, and playgrounds—all nestled under a canopy of lush, tropical trees. EVERYTHING is free from the moment our guests reach the park! Admission, parking, lunch, boat rides, the concerts, and all Bash related activities are FREE for attendees and always will be. The proposed date for next year’s Bash is currently Saturday, March 2nd, 2023 (10am-3pm).
