You know you missed us! We missed you, and we just couldn’t leave you hanging for a third year, so we’re beyond excited to announce the return of the Silver Room Sound System Block Party©™!

We were planning our 2020 party when what we thought would be a couple weeks of uncertainty turned into a couple years. We were all upended by a surprising global health crisis colliding with racial unrest that felt too familiar. We made our way–as we always do–by finding inventive ways to adapt, connect and entertain. While we were away, we thought about what a block party really is: A celebration. A reunion. A kiki. A place to laugh, feel, heal and dream. To make memories and future plans. To dance, to sing, to vibe. Community. Togetherness. Tradition.

So finally, after everything we’ve all been through, we’re back for year 17 and better than ever. It’s the same southside summer energy with some major upgrades from previous years.  We’ve gone from a 1-day party to a 2-day celebration. And, get ready for a change of scene from the streets to the beach! We’ve outgrown our home in Hyde Park, so we’re relocating to the more spacious Oakwood Beach! So this year we’ll be partying with the skyline in our sights and the lake by our side.

And of course you can expect the usual dope musical lineup across multiple stages, but we’ve added local food vendors, a health + wellness area, a design pavilion, beach volleyball, and even more to come.

We’ve been putting in work to make this the most memorable Block Party yet. From grown folks to kiddos–it’s fun for everyone! So, join us for head nods, handshakes and hugs. Let’s celebrate the healing power of music and art, together. This is for US.

JULY 16 & 17 | NOON – 10PM
