In the 1800s, “The Blocks” was known as the Black business, entertainment and cultural district in the city of Pensacola—or the “Harlem of the South.” Today, it holds claim to being the center of artistic and cultural renaissance as an economic resurgence. Join us for a 2-day festival filled with culture, music, fun, family and food!

About the Block Party

A one-day musical series of Motown & old school blues, jazz, R&B, gospel, rock, pop, and classical music for an outdoor evening and entertainment party that celebrates community, camaraderie, and culture. This year’s party will celebrate with artists and entertainers from New Orleans, Atlanta, and our local Pensacola favorites, accompanied by a half-day “Beats on the Block” jam session of stage and street corners performances by local student musicians.

This event includes a Battle of the Bands Challenge as local high school, and college bands “strut their stuff”. Performances by Washington High School, Pensacola High School, and Pine Forest High School. (Music, Nov 4th, Corners of Belmont & DeVilliers). This event is Free, Pet free and open to the public.
