What to Get Excited For at Block Party This Year

August 15, 2018

Student Activities is very excited to bring you a special highlight post for some of our Block Party sponsors this year. These sponsors have worked hard this summer to prepare for our big event on Saturday, September 8. We asked them about what they’re excited for at this year’s Block Party – read their answers below!

90.9 The Light: “We are always excited to meet our fellow students at Liberty University up close.

We bring positive music, news, sports and entertainment to our listeners while training the next generation of broadcasters that will go out and impact the world. We have a great staff with several new members that have fresh ideas on ways to interact with our audience and provide cool content, so give us a follow (909thelight) on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!”

Since 1783, the Lynchburg Community Market has played a key role in the development and growth of downtown Lynchburg. Their Market Mission is:

  • To perpetuate Lynchburg’s historic public market activity
  • To celebrate regional food traditions
  • To provide access to fresh, farm-grown food while supporting local area agriculture
  • To provide a public downtown “town square” gathering place
  • To help revitalize downtown Lynchburg

Lynchburg Community Market: “The Lynchburg Community Market is excited to welcome Liberty students invite them to enjoy all the great things we have to offer including: fresh, locally grown produce, locally made crafts and art, and a selection of mini-restaurants inside.

We are the best place to get fresh, locally grown produce and handmade crafts and artworks in downtown Lynchburg. Join us for our Harvest Festival, October 27 and weekly Tuesday-Saturday, 7 a.m.-2 p.m.!

Golf Park Coffee was founded in 2014 by Co-Founders Adam Shurr & Ben Young. They started Golf Park Coffee out of a desire to grow the coffee culture in our area and bring a new exciting product to the market. They believe that community and collaboration are the backbone of our company. In July of 2018, Golf Park Coffee opened their first brick and mortar shop in Lynchburg, inside of the Bedford Exchange at 2306 Bedford Ave. This shop is Golf Park’s first move into a full espresso and coffee program featuring coffee from Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Co. and tea from Hugo Tea Company.

Golf Park Coffee: “We’re pumped to welcome back all of Liberty’s students & and we’re stoked to meet the new freshman class…and, of course, we can’t wait to hang with our awesome friends from SA. We hope that people look at Golf Park as a place to meet up with friends, get work done…maybe even be a first-date destination. Essentially, we want to become everyone’s go-to shop for a good cup of coffee–both students & Lynchburg locals alike.

We’re the new kids in town–we’d love for you to check out our new shop at 2306 Bedford Ave, just off of Rivermont Ave. Follow @golfparkcoffee for regular info & updates.”

Domino’s operates more than 14,000 pizza restaurants in more than 85 countries, and delivers more than 1.5 million pizzas each day. Domino’s delivery experts drive more than 10 million miles across the United States every week to bring you the best food we can make. Talk about passion!

Domino’s (Wards Road): “We are always to excited to see how many students come to have fun. We bring amazing product, brought to each student with awesome service, and a great attitude. Liberty should know we love being part of this incredible school. We have been with Liberty for almost a decade now. The students and what they bring to Lynchburg are our top priority.”
