The festivities are set to take place on Saturday, November 18th, from 1-4 p.m. at FCTV’s headquarters located at 310E Dillingham Avenue.
In a nod to old-fashioned block parties, the “Community Media Block Party” offers a blend of indoor and outdoor attractions, promising an enjoyable and memorable experience for the community. The block party is free and open to the general public.
The entertainment lineup includes local DJ Evan Jones spinning vinyl records, as well as live performances by local talent, including the Pat Ryan Trio, The Dance Space, Falmouth Fiddlers, Turning Pointe Dance Studio, and hip-hop composer The Zyg 808.
Additionally, FCTV will host an FCTV Member Community Mini-Fair, providing visitors with a chance to connect with local nonprofits and community groups, including Belonging To Each Other, the Cape Cod Cape Verdean Museum and Cultural Center, Falmouth Gun Safety Coalition, Falmouth Pond Coalition, Farming Falmouth, The Green Center, and Upper Cape Women’s Coalition.

Family fun includes games like giant chess, giant Jenga, giant Connect 4, and cornhole toss.
While there, attendees can explore FCTV’s broadcast technology, including their state-of-the-art mobile production vehicle and green screen chroma key studio. Guided tours of FCTV’s facilities will also be offered for those keen to delve deeper into the world of community media.
