Better Block

Saturday, September 29th 11am-6pm

You’re invited to the Kent Better Block! This community based event will span N. Water St., from Main St. to Brady St., and include place-making activities that will temporarily transform the urban landscape to re-imagine how residents, businesses, and the community interact with this vibrant area. Stay tuned for further event details!

Better Block is a celebration of community. We want to temporarily demonstrate the potential N. Water St. has to offer and what it could look like. The street will be filled with community members gathering around improved crosswalks, pop-up shops, murals, additional seating, live music, and added greenery while honoring the rich history of the street itself.
