Bonfire Brewing and Optimum Events present the fourth-annual Bonfire Block Party this Friday, June 1st and Saturday, June 2nd in downtown Eagle. Nine bands will be featured over two days, along with craft beer, food trucks and, new for 2018, a tented VIP Experience.
The Block Party kicks off on Friday with local bluegrass band, Hardscrabble at 4:00 p.m., followed by the first Main Stage act, blues rocker Nicki Bluhm at 4:30 p.m. Between two venue stages, the music is continuous, with Hardscrabble playing during all Main Stage set breaks. San Francisco-based Con Brio plays the Main Stage beginning at 6:30 p.m., followed by headliners and jam funk sensations, Galactic at 8:30 p.m.
Saturday’s music starts early at 2:30 p.m. with Assembly of Dust on the Broadway Main Stage. Set breaks will be filled with Second Stage band, Duey & The Decibels, who first take the stage at 4:00 p.m. New Orleans legends, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Colorado favorite, Sam Bush make their encore Block Party appearances, beginning at 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., respectively. Saturday’s event closes out with headliners, Grammy-nominated The Record Company, who Rolling Stone says, “kick up a raw rootsy racket.” The Record Company takes the Main Stage at 8:30 p.m.
A portion of all Block Party proceeds benefit Eagle County nonprofit The Cycle Effect, who will be operating a bike valet during the event.
