Come join us at THE BLOCK, our downtown street party, on Saturday, July 30th from 5:30 – 9:30pm. THE BLOCK will take place on Cabot Street from Pond Street to Federal Street where guests can walk around, meet up with friends, listen to live music and enjoy street food.
As a special thank you, the first 500 people who make the suggested $5 donation at the gate will receive a free gold medal as part of our Olympic theme for July. There will be fun trophies awarded for the best Olympic-inspired costumes.
We are pleased to announce three bands will provide live music. Exit 18 will kick off the party at 5:30pm, followed by the Barn Burners String Band at 7:00pm and Lockjaw Smile at 8:30pm. DJ Andrea Stamas will be spinning tunes at the Ellis Square all night, so you can enjoy music all over THE BLOCK.
Check out the bands on Facebook:
Local restaurants will sell food that you can walk around with or you can pull up a chair at a long community table in the middle of the street. Enjoy dinner and dessert from vendors set up outside on Cabot Street including A&B Burgers, Atomic Café, Fibber McGee’s, Flour(ish) Bake Shoppe, Jacob's Corner Pub, Joe's on a Roll, Kame, La Victoria Taqueria, Mimzee's Ice Cream and Soma. Food selections include steak tips, lobster rolls, pizza, sandwiches, burritos, hot dogs, dumplings, coffee, pastries, ice cream and more. Salerno’s Italian Eatery will be selling craft beer, sangria and wine. Downtown restaurants in the area will also be open so there will be plenty of choices for everyone.
Don’t forget to stop by the Beverly Main Streets tent to pick up fun freebies from event sponsors and learn about upcoming events. We are planning a second block party on Saturday, September 17th with all new bands and more!
