The Block Party 2015 | Saturday, Sep. 12, 2015 | Boulder, Colorado | #SXSTV



This is an ALL AGES COMMUNITY EVENT.

We want to bring back the Block Parties. The ghetto rigged bandstands made of folding tables, with sound systems stecked full of ghetto blasters and subs wired up to the powerlines.... The raw vibe you get from rockin' outdoors with the sun at your back and concrete under your feet.

OK maybe not quite so raw, but we ARE taking The Block Party OUTSIDE again! But this year, we are going BIGGER (of course) with a BIGGER dance floor and MORE seating and BETTER amenities! It's going to be out of this world!

Oh, and of course it's a free event (as usual)!
