Welcome Summer with 4th and Rogers Block Party on Friday, June 7

BLOOMINGTON, IND. — All are invited to celebrate the beginning of Bloomington summer with a First Friday block party on the evening of Friday, June 7 from 5–9 PM.

Vegan barbeque from Rainbow Bakery, Mexican food from Pili’s Party Taco, frozen treats from Rasta Pops, and gluten-free ice cream sandwiches from Oona will all be on offer for dinner or after-dinner enjoyment. Sets by Busman’s Holiday, DJs from Secretly Group, and a local jazz combo will be happening throughout the evening.

For families, Lotus will offer art-making activities, goats from Goat Conspirary Farm will make an appearance, and plenty of sidewalk chalk will be available for impromptu creation. Satori Martial Arts will provide live martial arts demos for adults and kids.

Indoors, visitors can view exciting new work by several artists as part of Gallery Walk. Pictura Gallery is exhibiting photography work by Leigh Merrill (“This Place”), with a pop-up exhibit of woodworking and photography by Siosi Design in their theater space. Rainbow Bakery is opening a show of work by Bloomington multimedia artist Mitch Rainey. I Fell will be opening an exhibition of new art, TBA, and Power Plant Gallery (in the basement of I Fell) will have cool stuff going on. Cicada Cinema will be screening the best of the Instant Gratification Movie Challenge continuously inside Ardent Instruments, with a 10-year-anniversary celebration of the beloved community filmmaking event in the I Fell after the block party has died down.

Down the block near Third and Rogers, the offices of Secretly Group will also have open doors, with a staff art show in their breezeway.
