The Block Party offers more than just live music. An entire block of Sullivan Street is dedicated to young children, offering a variety of games and activities plus educational opportunities from the police and fire departments. At the old City Market place property, children of all ages can enjoy a number of entertaining inflatables and a climbing wall while their parents watch from a nearby family tent.
No event has a better group of vendors than the Block Party, long known for the variety of its food and drink offerings. Affordably priced Budweiser beer, wine and Coca Cola products will also be available. Although the Block Party is free, please do not walk through the entry gates without dropping a generous amount of money into the donation buckets. The Block Party is only possible as a result of your generosity, and all proceeds go to area nonprofits. Also, please patronize the sponsors who make the Block Party possible.
