Join the fun every summer Saturday just a short trip from Waypoint Apartments at the Downtown Hampton Block Party. The 23-year-long tradition continues on May 6, when the Downtown Hampton Block Party kicks off the 2017 season. The quirky activities surrounding the Downtown Hampton Block Party showcases the unique nature of the restaurants and businesses found along Queens Way.
Each Saturday, from May 6 to August 26, partygoers descend on Queens Way for a night of music, food, adult beverages, and fun. Live music is the heart and soul of the block parties, which attract both local and national artists. Performers for the 2017 season include The Deloreans, Slapnation, Three Sheets to the Wind and Living Colour, the band behind the 1988 hit ”Cult of Personality”.
Alongside the musical acts, the Downtown Hampton Block Party is also known for their colorful theme nights. This season will see the return of Bob Ross Paint Night on July 1 and Rolling of the Bulls, featuring roller derby girls and their whiffle ball bats, on July 8. The popular off-season event, Halloween Block Party, also returns on October 28.
A new addition to the Downtown Hampton Block Party in 2017 will be the Soap Box Derby on August 5. For this adults-participant-only event, teams will design, build and drive makeshift vehicles down the bridge on Settlers Land Road. Entries can be judged on either their speed or artistic merit.
