Downtown Winchester will see the return of its Rock the Block concert series Friday, June 11, from 5-9 p.m.
Previously, June’s Rock the Block was accompanied by Winchester’s signature Beer Cheese Festival. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival had to be postponed. It is slated to return in 2022.
Joining in the event’s stead is the Beer Cheese Shop in the parklet at 19 North Main Street, with vendors selling crafts, farmers market goods, and of course, beer cheese. At 7 p.m., country band The Ranahans will “Rock the Block” at the Main Street courthouse stairs.
The event will also be host to a children’s section, where kids can get with balloon animals and partake in soccer.
Simultaneous to the event is the Remember When Cruiserz Car Show in downtown. Spectators will be able to view vintage cars cruising down Main Street.
Rock the Block is sponsored by Traditional Bank. Entry is free. For more information, visit Winchester Downtown’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MainStreetWinchesterKY.
