Community Block Party

Each year, University of Jamestown hosts a “block party” where local businesses and organizations setup booths along the street downtown and have games, giant inflatables, food, givaways, and more.

This year's block party is September 1st from 5:00 – 8:00 pm, and there is no registration or admission cost to attend. The booths have something for everyone, so bring the whole family.

The block party brings together Jamestown’s residents and business community with the students, faculty and staff of University of Jamestown. The goal of the event is to encourage continued interaction between these two groups that will enhance mutual alliances.

  • As a resident, please join us for an evening of fun, food and entertainment! Bring your kids! Get to know your neighbors, see what local businesses and service organizations have to offer and meet some wonderful students!
  • As a business or organization, this is an opportunity for you to showcase your services, products and community support. It will also be a perfect event to interest individuals in your organization.
  • As a student, learn about the community, meet our residents and become familiar with the businesses, service organizations and churches in the area.

Reserve a space to showcase your business or organization. Inform students and local residents what you have to offer. Provide information or give-a-ways. Use your space as a fundraiser or to entertain – it’s up to you as to how you would like to participate!

Please remember, you are responsible for providing your own table and chairs and extension cords (extra-long and bring extra!). We also recommend that you bring your own garbage can and garbage bags for your booth. Also, booth set-up can begin at 3:00 p.m. in downtown Jamestown.
