July 13, 2024, 1:00 - 4:00 PM
Durham Bulls Athletic Park

Book Harvest’s annual Summer Block Party will once again fill the concourse of the Durham Bulls Athletic Park on Saturday, July 13, 2024 from 1 to 4 p.m.


The free, outdoor event is a joyful celebration of books, summer, and community! The afternoon will be action-packed, featuring fun-filled family activities and entertainment, and an abundance of free, culturally inclusive children’s books for every child – from infants to high schoolers – who chose their very own books to take home and keep forever!

With special guest: Happy Dan the Magic Man!
