THE BLOCK Downtown Street Party

Now celebrating 7 years! Come join us at THE BLOCK, our downtown street party, on Saturday, July 27 (and again on August 24 with new food and music) 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.

While supplies last, novelty party eyeglasses with flashing lights are available at the admission gates with $5 donation.

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. Suggested donation is $5 per person at the gate.

Don’t forget:
• $5 cash donation per person at the admission gates
• Bring your Massachusetts State ID if you plan to drink
• Please bring cash – all vendors take cash only

Please note, bags may be subject to inspection. No pets, bikes, skateboards, rollerblades, hover boards, drones etc.
