Get ready for another season of East End Fourth Fridays! as DiverseArts Culture Works in collaboration with the East End IBIZ District brings the community block party back for another year to the neighborhood.  This year promises to bring new levels of community growth and fun as several local businesses will be offering specials, happy hours and entertainment throughout the day.

Throughout the evening, we also invite you to enjoy the various family friendly activities we will have available. Come see the kid-focused entertainment in the Kenny Dorham’s Backyard Kids’ Corner, a special area for kids to play and enjoy the day. Each month, Kids’ Corner will feature arts and crafts, toys, free books from our exchange library, and free pizza for kids(while it lasts!) provided by East Side Pies.

The evening promises to have something for everyone, so don’t miss the opportunity to hang out and support your favorite local businesses. For more information and daily updates, check out the East End Fourth Fridays Facebook page,, or the DiverseArts website,
