This event has passed. Stay tuned for 2019 event details.

Join us for a free community block party on October 27th on Reynolds Ave. Let’s come together as a united community and envision a revitalized space. Enjoy kids activities, explore safe street enhancements, live music, eating contests, dance performances, DJs from Z93 and more. 

Saturday, October 27th — 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Reynolds Ave in the Macon (Between Spruill and Rivers Aves.)

What is the Better Block model? Better Block is a rapid 2-3 month planning effort culminating into a multi-day build and transformative event with collaboration from an engaged community that temporarily improves the physical and economic environment on a specific city block. (source: Birmingham Better Block)

Ultimately, Better Block will be a demonstration project of what the community envisions for a more connected, walkable, bikeable, economically vibrant, and safe street.
