Summer Fun Continues at July 11th Rock the Block in Downtown Howell

Free music, food, games and local breweries bring family-fun for 2nd Rock the Block music series of the season

Howell MI –Rock the Block kicked-off the season with an all new format, food, and fun. The community embraced the changes with over 1200 attendees dancing the night away in downtown Howell!  The popular music and foodie series returns Wednesday, July 11th, with live music, food, and brews from Howell breweries and other food vendors.  

“Combining the music, food and brews all within two larger venues, not only allowed us to attract larger bands, but gave the entire event more of a festival atmosphere for attendees to enjoy” states Howell Main Street Inc. C.O.O., Cathleen Edgerly. We look forward to having even more people come check out the event, shop our downtown businesses and experience our excellent dining and pub venues! Plus, we will have some surprises for the kids at our State Street location this month.  We can’t wait to see everyone there!
