The Downtown Statesboro Development Authority will be hosting a WinterFest block party on West Main St. and West Vine St. on First Friday, Feb. 3, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

It’s time to celebrate all the wonderful things winter has to offer, and Downtown Statesboro is your destination for all things fun. This WinterFest block party will provide an evening for you to enjoy with family, friends, loved ones, and even your pets.

You can try your hand at ax throwing or stick to shopping for jewelry, soaps, candles, and other handmade goods. Food will be available from a variety of vendors throughout the night. A s’mores station will also be open to provide a sweet treat and fun activity for all. Vandy’s BBQ will feature music from Dan Larkin and Friends.

“This year, we are expanding our event to include West Vine St., making it a big block party. This expansion will allow even more room for our vendors and fun activities,” said Allen Muldrew, Executive Director for the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority.

Road closings for the event are as follows: West Main St. to College St. and West Vine St. to Walnut St. These road closures will take place from 3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on the day of the event.

Despite the road closures, people will still be able to shop at businesses like Vino 1910, Material Girl, Charlie’s Funky Junk Shop, Miracles Children’s Boutique, and LA Waters Furniture and Mattress Center as they will remain open later into the evening.

First Fridays are possible by the support of the following sponsors:
