You won’t want to miss the fun!!

Straight Outta the Oven!

We can hardly wait for the DelSur Empanadas & Lomitos Food Truck to roll onto Mainstreet so we can feast on these authentic Argentinian empanadas, which literally means “wrapped in bread.” With fresh dough made daily, DelSur’s empanadas are super tasty, made from scratch and are “the best of South American cooking.”

Hot Off the Grill!

We are thrilled to be out in the “front yard” (aka Mainstreet) of this popular neighborhood gathering space for another year! Thirty Bales will be grilling locally sourced, fresh ingredients, which they’re known for, while mixing up craft spirits at the outdoor bars throughout the night. (Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.) Serving Midwestern “flavors and frivolity in equal measure,” Thirty Bales always adds another level of fun, frolic, and fare to Rock-N-Royal!

Dance the Night Away!

It seems fitting that Watson the Band would be a HEF favorite. After all the band’s founding members actually met in high school! Sharing their “modern classic rock” blend, the five member band has four albums and more than 100 shows in the books. Watson can be heard playing at music venues all over the
Twin Cities! Don’t miss them take the stage in Hopkins.

Whether you’re a skilled Cornholer or a newby to the game, HEF’s First Ever Cornhole Tournament is sure to be a blast! Go Royals!

Space is limited.  Don’t delay!  Register your team today!

Join a Rockin’ Team and Sign Up to be a Rock-N-Royal Volunteer

This fun-loving, hard-working group is such a big part of what makes this Block Party spectacular. Whether you’ve never volunteered with HEF before or this is your hundredth time serving, we have a place for you! Lots of awesome volunteers are needed so don’t delay! Grab a friend and sign up for a shift or better yet, sign up for a shift and make a new friend!


Venue: Hopkins Center for the Arts on Mainstreet. The block in front of HCA (closed to traffic) provides a great venue to mingle, eat, listen to music, and dance. We have space inside (just in case).
