Labor Day Block Party
In conjunction with The Main Event and the Bexley Brewfest, we're excited to announce our Labor Day plans for 2021. Please join us for live music, a car show, touch-a-truck, food, and much more at the Labor Day Block Party along E. Main Street on Sunday, September 5!
Also on Main Street is the annual Bexley Brewfest! The 2021 Bexley Brewfest will feature 50+ craft brews, seltzers, and ciders produced by some of the best craft breweries in the Buckeye State. A ticket is required to participate in the Brewfest, however the other activities going on along Main Street are free.
