| March 8, 2019 | 0 Comments

Local brewery Ballast Point and the Little Italy Association of San Diego will host the “Made in San Diego Block Party.”

Local award-winning brewery Ballast Point and the Little Italy Association of San Diego will host the “Made in San Diego Block Party” from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, March 30 on India St, W Ivy St, and W Juniper St surrounding the Ballast Point Little Italy Tasting Room. The event will celebrate the San Diego brands that have called America’s Finest City their longtime home by bringing together San Diego breweries, music, food, artists and more. The event is free with suggested donation to the Little Italy Association of San Diego and is open to the 21+ public. RSVP is required. Beer sampling ticket options are also available.

The “Made in San Diego Block Party” has also partnered with SanDiegoMade.org, an artist collective that aims to increase awareness of local arts and products within the San Diego community. A curated selection of product vendors, including clothing, bath/body products, jewelry, accessories and more, will participate in the event to promote the “Shop Local. Buy Local” philosophy to the public.

Rock band, Wavves, formed in 2008 in San Diego by singer-songwriter Nathan Williams, will headline the block party. The energetic surf-rock quartet Mrs. Magician and The Schizophonics, will also perform at the event.

To further encourage local art, Cohort Collective, an artist driven collective that seeks to elevate the local San Diego art scene, will create an installation for “Ballast Point’s Made in San Diego Block Party.” Artist, sculptor and muralist Chris Konecki (@konecki_art) will lead the creation of the event’s featured piece.
