Street Closure Details
The segment of Bay Street between the Siuslaw River Bridge and Laurel Street will be closed to traffic for the Block Party beginning at 2 p.m. on Friday, July 15. The street will reopen to traffic following the cleanup of the event at approximately 11 p.m.
If accommodations are needed by residents or business owners in the area, they may contact the City of Florence.
Florence’s previous Block Parties have been made possible by the generous support of our sponsors.
As the city plans for 2022, staff are again looking for this support to assist in proving this amazing event for our community. Support of this event ensures that the city can provide an evening of fun and games for families to enjoy.
The city has created three sponsorship levels that can be on the sponsorship page, www.ci.florence.or.us/blastonbaystreet.
Sponsorship contributions will be essential to assist in covering the costs of the free concert, the
interactive community scavenger hunt app, supplies for the fun and games, ice cream and other goodies, giveaways for attendees, and other logistical needs associated with the event.
