Music


A great block party calls for great music.  Bloktoberfest will once again be featuring an expansive live music line-up: a mix of nationally recognized and emerging local acts covering a wide array of genres and styles, presented on two stages.  And as always, taking in the many musical performances at Bloktoberfest is completely free.

The main festival stage will be located inside in Jamaican Jerk Hut’s atmospheric outdoor lot. Bands and DJs will be on hand to entertain the crowds throughout the day and well into the night, as Bloktoberfest moves off the street for an official after-party from 8pm to 11pm, presented by Round Guys Brewing Company. 

Beyond the main stage, guests can enjoy performances on the 16th Street Stage at the intersection of 16th and South, where our line-ups will put a spotlight squarely on local musical talent from the South of South Neighborhood and surrounding community.
