A year ago, we had this crazy dream ... to create a one-day festival that celebrates the influences of Mexico on the rich culture and heritage of our city and our beautiful borderlands. The Blackwell Block Party is the result of many organizations and individuals collaborating across labels and versions of the Marfa dream to create a shared experience of Marfa pride and ownership.
It is happening because of you Foundations, businesses, the City of Marfa, and common folks have been so generous in supporting this dream. Music, food, dancing, games and activities, films, fun for kids―and even a community mural depicting the beauty and wonder contained in pages from the Marfa storybook.
We need one more favor: Volunteers Can you spend a few hours serving food or helping with games or selling merchandise? Bring your friends and make it a fun experience of service. Then kick back and enjoy the rest of the party. And THANK YOU!
