Due to health concerns, FUNRC, Upper Noe Neighbors and Rec & Park have made the decision to forego any plans for a blockparty at the rec center for fall 2021. When the situation improves, we hope to resume plans for community events and entertainment activities.

Concerts in the ParkConcerts in the Park

Concerts in the Park are free, family-friendly live musical performances in the playground from 10 a.m. until noon on the first and third Saturdays of each month.

The 2020 and 2021 seasons were cancelled. We hope to have a 2022 season when that is allowed. Stay tuned.

Past Events

Upper Noe Block Party 2019 –  Sept 28
was great fun and a resounding success. Hundreds of neighbors came together with Upper Noe merchants, schools, associations, city agencies and esteemed public officials for an afternoon of fun activities, music and treats.
Thank you to everyone for showing up and being the life of the party. A special thanks to those who staffed a table at the event and or provided the support necessary to make it happen.
