Biggest Block Party Ever is an annual fundraiser for the Columbus Area Arts Council. Held on the last Saturday of July, the block party includes three music stages and 11 bands performing throughout the evening. The entertainment line-up includes local and regional acts playing a range of musical styles from rock and country to blues and soul.
This community event attracts nearly 3,500 people of all ages to the streets of downtown Columbus in the heart of the Columbus Arts District. Downtown restaurants prepare special block party food and set up shop on the sidewalks. Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks are available along 4th Street. Children can enjoy the Hilliard Lyons Kids Zone with special activities.
