The Boca Raton Boating & Beach Bash for People with Disabilities, the nation’s largest free festival for people with disabilities, has postponed its return until next year due to the ongoing surge of COVID-19 infections. The sensitive nature of the event attendees’ health factored into the decision to effectively cancel this year’s event. The Boating and Beach Bash had been slated to make its long-awaited return this February at Spanish River Park.
The event is presented by the American Disabilities Foundation, and has been known to draw attendees from all over the country for a day of inclusive and family-friendly activities.
Organizers are still seeking sponsorships, vendors, exhibitors, entertainment and local boat captains for the 2023 event. After an extended pause, the organization committee is working to re-establish relationships and welcome new organizations to participate.
