To celebrate five years of being in business, Pigeons & Thread is taking over the Henderson Brewery parking lot for a huuuge block party on Saturday, August 11, and YOU. SHOULD. GO!

Beginning at 12:00 p.m., the block party is a FREE, family-friendly event that is jam-packed with music, food, fashion, art, self-care and even free bicycle tune-ups!

There will be an all-day market where you can browse local apparel and jewellery, including Rosehound Apparel, Paranoid Print, Sara Duke, and Two Cities. Shoppe and Tailor will set up a one-stop fitting room and will be doing on-site fittings and alterations. Stretch it out at Pure Yoga classes (happening at 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m). Bad News DJ D will be spinning 45’s, and A.R.R. Hastings and The Cinders will be performing live. Kung Fu Dawg will be serving up some tasty dawgs. AND Henderson Brewery will have its tasting room/bottle shop open, so you can enjoy a cold pint while strolling around the market. (See? We told you there’s something for everyone!)

Come out and celebrate small biz in a big way.

The Block Party takes place Saturday, August 11 from 12 to 9 p.m. at Henderson Brewery. For more information and up-to-date info, check out the Facebook event.
