That’s the date for the seventh annual Block Street Block Party, the local street festival featuring several stages of live music, arts and craft vendors, games, food, and general awesomeness each year along Block Avenue.

Organizers of the festival are already seeking volunteers, vendors and sponsors for this year’s event, and applications for all three are available at

Booth fees are $150 for food vendors, and $100 for other businesses. Non-profit booths are also available for either a $100 fee, or $25 plus a four-hour volunteer shift during the festival.

Details of this year’s event are still in the works, but the festival typically features dozens of bands and DJs, local beer gardens, kids activities, and about a zillion other things.

Here are some photos from last year, and the year before that, to give you an idea of what to expect.
