BEMIDJI — The annual Bemidji Block Party returns from 2 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 25, at Bemidji Brewing, 211 America Ave. NW.

According to a Facebook event announcement, presented in partnership with Bemidji Brewing and Northern Community Radio - KAXE/KBXE, the Block Party will include family friendly entertainment, games, area food vendors, locally brewed beer (obviously!) and music from Sarah Streitz, New Salty Dog, Bad Bad Hats and Corey Medina and Bros.

"An authentic musician to the core with her classic country roots, tied into roots rock and folk music, Sarah Streitz has been on our radar for a few years and we're so happy to welcome her to northern Minnesota," the announcement read.

"New Salty Dog is one of the most exciting bands coming out of Duluth today. With Jacob Mahon on vocals, KAXE/KBXE has been tracking the Mahon brothers since they were teens in Brainerd. Lots of young talent in this band.

"Bad Bad Hats is one of Minnesota's premier indie rock bands. They have played on the stage with Third Eye Blind, Hippo Campus, Margaret Glaspy among other great musicians.
Fronted by singer Kerry Alexander, the band has a stage presence that is hooky, fun and captivating.

"Closing out the day is northern Minnesota's favorite blues-rockers, Corey Medina and Bros. Led by Corey Medina from the Navajo Nation, the band is fresh off the heels of their first show in the famed 7th Street Entry at First Avenue."

The event will be free, thanks to funding from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
