Festidan Grove Block Party

Festidan Grove Block PartySaturday, August 20, 2pm – Barracuda Taphouse & Grill, 3035 Fuller St, Coconut Grove

Join the 10th anniversary of FESTIDAN free block party in Coconut Grove. Performances by: Spam All Stars, Problem Kids, DJ Ethics, DJ Kiko and DJ Krys. In lieu of an entrance fee, monetary donations will be accepted at the annual event to help sponsor the Castaways Against Cancer. Street closure will take place on Fuller Street between Grand Ave and Main Hwy in front of Barracudas. Over the last 9 years, Festidan has raised over $30,000 for numerous charities with proceeds from its annual event. Festidan has evolved over the years, each year becoming bigger and better, while also turning greater donations to these charities. The first three years were held at Bicentennial Park as a tailgate party benefiting Camp Boggy Creek. In 2010, it relocated to Coconut Grove as a Block Party, followed by two years at Peacock Park, benefiting the ALS Recovery Fund. In the last three years, the event has teamed up with the Castaways Against Cancer to host pool parties at Finnegans on the River and the Rooftop at the Mayfair Hotel. The Castaways Against Cancer crew is a rag-tag group of kayaking enthusiasts who paddle from Coconut Grove to Key West to raise money for the American Cancer Society during their annual Relay For Life event.
