Kalynn Sortino, Business and Entrepreneur Support Coordinator at Downtown Partners states, “Sioux City has been known for live music, and events with live music. So, for one day, we wanted to steer away from performers and let the community come together, just like they would for a neighborhood block party, but in the streets of downtown Sioux City! Let’s fill downtown with laughter, and a little friendly competition.”

Teams can register HERE to compete in the Bar Olympic Games which include; cornhole (bags), life-size trash pong, ladder golf, knock-out and more! There will be art aspects, show cars, and lots of food and drinks. The Block Party will be located in between 4th and 5th street on Water and Pearl.
