Hampton Block Party

21 Years of Summer Saturdays in Downtown Hampton Virginia


Warm Summer Nights

Spend your Saturday nights on The Block this summer.  Bring a chair and watch the band or bring your appetite and sample food from our vendors or from one of the many independently owned downtown restaurants.

Local & National Music

From country to hair bands to local favorites, each week is something new.  Scroll down for sched  ule.  

Block Party is from 6pm to 11pm

Funding Local Charities

We get charities to run the beer tents and let them keep the tips.  They get to spread the word about their good deeds and we get cold beer served with a smile.  Click here to learn about having your charity volunteer.

This summer the downtown Hampton Block Party returns with a killer lineup that includes rising star Seth Stainback, soul power revivalists Major and the Monbacks, rockabilly guitar geek Deke Dickerson, Southern Culture on the Skids, Chris Duarte, Don Butcher, Quincy Mumford, The Fuzz Band, and the Jackie Scott Blues Camp for Kids. Memorial Day weekend we’ll get a visit from your favorite band whether you like it or you love it, the Red Elvises, who will be accompanied by Staunton sweethearts, the Judy Chops. The band, the mojo, the legendary Slapnation will pay us a couple visits, and we’ll groove with jazz steel drum outfit the Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, dance a jig with celebrated Charlotte folk troubadours the New Familiars, and boogie all night with roots jam swamis the Giving Tree Band. William Walter & Company, the Southern Belles of Richmond, Folk Soul Revival and many more will lively up Downtown Hampton all summer long!
