Summer Block Party hits Downtown Utica






Do you like food? Dancing? Summer? Having a great time with your friends? Do you have $5 ($10 day of)? If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, then you have every reason to come on down to the Summer Block Party 2015!

Direkt Influence Collective, Fiesta! Productions, and Morning Music present 3 venues and 4 areas of art and music on one block in Downtown Utica from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday, June 27. Liondub and Subsoil are the featured musical acts, bringing the beats from NYC and Rochester, respectively.

WHERE:  The Dev (41 Devereux St., Utica), DA Bentley’s (812 Charlotte St., Utica) with an indoor and outdoor stage, and The Macartovin Annex (7 Devereux St., Utica), featuring a massive art gallery.

HOW MUCH? Tickets are $5 presale available for a limited time here. After that, tickets are just $10.

A barbecue is included in the ticket price while supplies last! So I recommend starting the party earlier if feasting is part of your agenda. If you miss out on the inclusive BBQ, don’t worry. Holy Smoque BBQ Food truck will be on site. Also if you want to join a good cause, bring a non-perishable food item to the Macaratovin Annex to help out their neighbors, The Feed Our Vets Food Pantry.
