Bloktoberfest Music

Bloktoberfest has always been about celebrating local music and this year is no different. Headlining the event this year is Swift Technique and Worldtown Sound System.

Bloktoberfest has raised more than $250,000 for neighborhood programs since its start. Funds have gone to the likes of Stanton Elementary music programs, capital funding for Graduate Hospital neighborhood parks, the Friends of Chester Arthur School and many more.

Weather is looking to be 63º and sunny.
