2019 East Village Opening Weekend Block Party

The East Village Association, Inc. (EVA) is stepping up to the plate with the 9th Annual 2019 East Village Opening Day Block Party on Thursday, March 28th AND Friday, March 29th vs. the San Francisco Giants! EVA is ready to hit the ball out of the park with this FREE, FAMILY-FRIENDLY, TWO-DAY BLOCK PARTY on “J” Street between 6th & 10th. This San Diego tradition is a fan-favorite in welcoming back the “Boys of Summer” to East Village’s very own PETCO Park.

“Root, root, root for the home team!” as attendees’ rock out to live band and DJ entertainment; and “swing batter, batter, swing!” as fans test their skills in the interactive game zone. Quench your thirst at the micro-brew beer garden featuring local craft beer, baseball-themed cocktails, and an adult-geared fun “activation zone”; while munching on the large varietal of local culinary delights from the food truck-lined streets.
