‘This Year’s Music Won’t Disappoint’
The Record Company and Galactic headline an all-star lineup that includes Sam Bush, Con Brio, Nicki Bluhm, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Assembly of Dust on the Broadway main stage. Hardscrabble and Duey & The Decibles round out the Second Street Bonfire stage. Music gets underway on Friday, June 1, at 4 p.m. and Saturday, June 2, at 2:30 p.m.
“We pulled out all the stops for this year’s musical lineup,” said Ted Wenninger, of Optimum Events, organizers of the Bonfire Block Party. “Over the years we’ve seen how hungry the valley is to get out and celebrate the beginning of summer the first week of June, and we know this year’s music won’t disappoint. In addition to new talent, we’re so happy to welcome back Block Party vets Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Sam Bush who brought down the house at the 2017 party.”

The arctic blast we saw at the end of October was just a tease. After a warmish, dry start to November, there isn’t much relief in sight.
