The Gowanus Block Party
The Gowanus Block Party
Celebrate The Bell House 10th Anniversary and our home ‘hood during the Gowanus Block Party on Saturday, September 8 from 12pm - 6pm. This free, family-friendly outdoor event brings together local artists, businesses, and community members for a day of food, drinks, games, music, and unique Gowanus experiences.

This won’t be your average Brooklyn block party - we’re bringing out interactive games including a life size Rock’em Sock’em, Angry Bird Catapult, Giant Plinko, the Carnival of Connectivity (for the littlest Gowanus dwellers), a Gowanus Haiku Contest, and so much more! Even better - all the funds raised from game participation will be donated to our nonprofit partner, Gowanus Canal Conservancy.
