5:30-9:30pm on Cabot Street
Now celebrating 5 years! Come join us at THE BLOCK, our downtown street party, on Saturday, September 16th from 5:30-9:30pm. THE BLOCK will take place on one block of Cabot Street from Pond Street to Federal Street. Guests can walk around, meet up with friends, listen to live music and enjoy street food, beer and wine. Because alcohol will be served, this is an event geared towards adults. Everyone is welcome to attend THE BLOCK, but there will not be any kids’ activities. Our other events like Arts Fest and Beverly’s New Year offer kids’ activities, but not this one.
While supplies last, every person who makes a $5 donation at the gate gets a free giveaway! One glow necklace per person with $5 donation.
Dread Rocks will provide live music at the Pond Street stage and DJ Noel Snow will be at Ellis Square all night, so you can enjoy music all over THE BLOCK. North Atlantic Dance Theatre will have two performances.
Don’t forget to stop by the Beverly Main Streets tent to learn about upcoming events and our sponsors. Major sponsors will have their tents set up at THE BLOCK with fun freebies, giveaways and contests!
NEW at THE BLOCK! Retonica will be setting up a light show right on Cabot St inside THE BLOCK area!
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. Food vendors include Atomic Cafe, Barrel House American Bar, Flour(ish) Bake Shoppe, Joe's on a Roll, Kame Restaurant, La Victoria Taqueria, Soma and Winfrey's Fudge & Chocolates. Downtown restaurants in the area will also be open so there will be plenty of choices for everyone.
Donation at the gate is $5 per person. Cash only. Bring your MA ID if you plan to drink. Please note bags may be subject to inspection. No pets, bikes, skateboards, rollerblades or hover boards. Cabot Street will be closed starting at 2:30pm from Pond Street to Federal Street.
