Celebrate 10 Years of Mission Bay With Block Party 7!


Every year since 2007, Campus Life Services has put on a big, memorable party at UCSF Mission Bay. People from every campus come out to connect with the whole UCSF community.

This year, Block Party 7 will be held on Wednesday, October 30. There will be a photo booth, free chair massage, prize wheel and lots of giveaways. For your entertainment, there will be jugglers, stilt walkers and music.

Enjoy sampling and shopping at the farmers’ market, as well as a variety of lunch specials. The first 500 attendees will receive a special commemorative gift, so plan on getting there early.

One of the highlights of this dynamic event is the chalk art contest, where artists can create a group or individual piece of art and enter to win prizes. This year, the grand prize is a $500 gift card for food at Café 24 or Publico. Anyone can sign up (even non-“artists”) on the day of the event in front of Publico, but be aware that space is limited, so if you’re feeling creative, sign up early.

This year, the party carries even more cause for celebration — UCSF Mission Bay’s 10th anniversary. Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann will be addressing the community at 12:30 p.m. in recognition of this special milestone in the history of UCSF.

So mark your calendar, tell your friends, and plan on being at the party of the year.
