Block party

The third-annual Block Party showcases main stage and side stage acts, along with food vendors and Bonfire Brewing craft beer releases each day. Pre-Block Party Shindig attendees will be able to pre-purchase a two-day Block Party wristband with a branded Block Party SiliPint for the June event at the discounted price of $20. Admission to the Announcement Shindig is free.

The Block Party’s main stage headliners for Friday, June 2, are funk masters Robert Randolph & The Family Band. Friday’s opening acts and Saturday’s full lineup will feature well-known music and will be announced at the Shindig on Saturday.

The Bonfire Block Party admission is $5 per day with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Eagle County nonprofit partner Cycle Effect, which hosts an onsite bike valet during the weekend’s family-friendly event.
