The East Village Association, Inc. (EVA) is stepping up to the plate again with the 8th Annual 2018 East Village Opening Weekend Block Party on Friday, March 30th from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM AND Saturday, March 31st from Noon to 6:30 PM.  That’s right! after a year of batting practice EVA is ready to hit the ball out of the park with a FULL OPENING WEEKEND BLOCK PARTY EXTRAVAGANZA!  This FREE, family-friendly, community event on J Street between 6th & 10th is a San Diego tradition where locals and visitors celebrate the Padres season opener weekend at East Village’s very own PETCO Park.

“Root, root, root for the home team!” as you rock out to live entertainment from local bands and DJs; and “swing batter, swing!” as you test your skills in the East Village Opening Weekend Block Party’s interactive game zone. A day out to the ballgame would not be complete without creative beverages, so quench your thirst at the micro-brew beer garden featuring local craft beer and baseball-themed cocktails; and satisfy your pre-game hunger with choices from the many East Village restaurants and food trucks lining the streets.

Additional information on the 8th Annual East Village Opening Weekend Block Party can be found at or All proceeds from block party sponsorships and exhibitors benefit the non-profit East Village Association, Inc. mission to support and promote East Village businesses, and establish the community as San Diego’s livable urban village.
