It’shappening in Downtown Culpeper; a Great American Main Street Award winner known for its natural beauty and historic charm. It’s the perfect stage for this new spring festival!

Entertainment at the Gnarly Block Party includes live music by two phenomenal bands; The Will Overman Band and The Judy Chops. The day’s festivities kick off with The Will Overman Band. Will Overman is a singer-songwriter based out of Nashville, TN playing Americana/country music influenced by Jason Isbell, James Taylor, and John Mayer. The Judy Chops are a group of friends that have been an indomitable force in the VA music scene since 2008. Their high energy live shows have been wowing audiences throughout the mid-Atlantic and beyond at venues like FloydFest and Lockin’. Blending elements of swing, blues, soul, rock-a-billy, classic country and western, with rock and roll, the band’s sound is a genre-defying musical experience sure to keep the Gnarly Block Party roaring.

In addition to our musical line-up, the Gnarly Block Party will have a variety of lawn games with prizes for adults, and a kids’ area with games, a caricature artist, face painting, and more.

The festival will serve up local craft beverages available for purchase from Culpeper’s very own Far Gohn Brewing Company, Beer Hound Brewery, and WAR Craft Brewery. A variety of Virginia craft beers including 6 Bears & A Goat Brewing Company, Brothers Craft Brewing, and Devil’s Backbone join the line-up as well.  As if it couldn’t get any better, wine lovers will enjoy a selection of hand-picked wines that make perfect pairings with the savory foods offered at the festival. CRI guarantees there will be plenty of craft beer, wine, and cider to suit anyone’s taste!

The festival food served up to match the outstanding beverages will be provided by 7 Moltin, Bowles Southern Fried, Burnt Ends BBQ, Purple Cow, and The Pier.
