Who doesn't love a good block party?

Who doesn't love a good block party?

The academic year gets its start in style with an annual block party for the Farmville and Longwood community.

See last year's highlights on YouTube

Featuring many local establishments in Farmville and music throughout the evening, Rock the Block is a great chance for freshman students to find out about their new home and for returning students to reconnect and find out what’s changed. It also kicks off Family Weekend!

Each year students enjoy:

  • Food Truck Row 
  • Local business showcase
  • Raffle (past items have included a GoPro camera, flat screen television, gaming systems and more!)
  • Games/rides
  • Beer garden
  • Live music
  • Free samples, coupons and giveaways
  • Fireworks
