Next 3 Days moves onto its 3rd official “Next 3 Days” neighborhood and showcase with Garfield. As the block party begins to wind down, catch the famous Garfield Gators as they play a charity game. We’re excited to kick off these 3 days to connect and hail the bustling Penn Avenue Business District and the lively Garfield Heights.

Tickets for this kick-off event are still available, but it is important to get them while you can—the proud community of Garfield is ready to show their love for their past, present and future community!


KST Alloy Studios ignites the evening with live music and dance performances throughout the night. You can sit back, relax and mingle while enjoying food from Garfield eateries, brews and cocktails. Wonder the venue to check out local art projects, Garfield neighborhood photography, block party games with City of Play and more. Don’t forget to grab some Garfield Gators merch and create signs with local artists to support the home team in the big game.
