Fall River’s 7th Annual Block-A-Palooza free concert ready to entertain



Yet another free summer concert is coming to downtown Fall River.

People Incorporated, the Narrows Center for the Arts, and the City of Fall River will collaborate once again to present the 7th Annual Block-A-Palooza on Thursday, July 11, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on South Main Street in downtown Fall River in front of the District Court House.

This year’s event is sponsored by BayCoast Bank, Bristol County Savings Bank, Mechanics Cooperative Bank, the Narrows Center for the Arts, and People Incorporated.

Block-A-Palooza is an annual, live music event in downtown Fall River that is free to the public, with South Main Street blocked off to vehicle traffic to provide an open live music venue for the audience. This family event attracts nearly 1,000 people for a night of free fun, dancing, and music. The performers on stage this year are opening act The National Reserve and headliner Samantha Fish.

The National Reserve is a classic American rock band that combines 1970s-style rock ‘n roll with R&B, soul, and their own unique brand. The band’s roots sound and lively performances have gained a strong following, particularly among the Brooklyn, New York scene.

Samantha Fish has established herself as a powerful live performer, bringing a fresh, young feel to the blues-rock tunes of the past. Mixing covers of the familiar classics with an impressive repertoire of originals, Samantha Fish brings a just-right mix of soulful melodies and shredding guitars.

Block-A-Palooza is a partnership of People Incorporated, the Narrows Center for the Arts, and the City of Fall River aimed at promoting the arts and stimulating the revitalization of downtown Fall River.
