Event Preview: Toledo Museum of Art Block Party

Toledo Local Features  |  07/05/2017 9:00 pm

Celebrate summer with thousands of party-goers and enjoy entertainment, food and music purveyors during the Museum’s fourth annual block party. The festivities are spread out across Monroe Street, which will be closed to traffic, and coincide with the opening of the special exhibition The Berlin Painter and His World, a display of ancient Athenian vase painting. With the season’s focus on the art of Greece, expect inspiration for the Block Party’s food, dance and music to come from across the Atlantic. Opa!

Parking is free for members and $7 for nonmembers. Rain or shine.
