Rock the Block - Sat. 9/11/2021 

Dine • Dance • Discover Downtown

The Village of Lake Zurich will host its 8th annual Main Street block party, Rock The Block, on September 11, 2021 from 5 - 11 pm.  Planned as an all-ages traditional street dance, partygoers are invited to Dine, Dance and (re)discover Main Street Lake Zurich. Three live bands take the stage for an evening of music, food and fun, and young party goers can visit the face painter and balloon art.

The event will be held on Main Street in Lake Zurich, (approximately 70 E. Main Street). To accommodate the event, Main Street will be closed from Church Street to Old Rand beginning at 10:30 am on the day of the event.
