Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I park?

There's lots of free parking throughout downtown. Please do not park in the Bank of America parking lot -- you will be towed. Check it out on our map.

Are Block Parties kid friendly?

Absolutely!  Block Parties are always kid friendly, and we encourage families to come out and dance together on the block.  We even have a kids area for the little ones.

What are the hours of Block Parties?

Block Parties kick off at 6pm, with bands taking the stage at 7pm.  We suggest getting here early with your chairs to grab a great spot on Queens Way! 

I'm kind of hungry.  What can I eat at Block Party?

Each weekend we'll have food trucks where you can grab a bit.  We also have some great restaurants throughout our entire downtown.  Japanese?  Check.  Hot dogs?  Check.  The best tater tots in Hampton Roads? We've got that too.  Check them out here.

My band wants to perform at Block Party. How can we rock out on Queens Way?

Just give Jennifer a call at 757-727-1271 for more details. 

How can my group pour beer at the Block Parties?

We are very excited your organization is interested in participating in our annual Block Party series.

Charities must complete an application to be considered. A copy of your non-profit status or the charity you are supporting must be included in your paperwork. We make every attempt to include as many charities as possible each season.

Can I just show up and sell my food ?

That would be great, however, there are many regulations that have to be done in advance of your participation.

If you are interested please give our office a call and we will walk you through the process. 

How much are the beverages?

We sell beer and wine for $5 each

Do you take credit cards?

We do not take credit cards for any beverage sales but there are a few ATM's downtown within a block, including SunTrust and Old Point National Bank, and TowneBank.
