The FRYfest High Porch Block Party, presented by Northwestern Mutual, is an outdoor area that includes a kids zone, bags tournament and non-competitive bags area, food and beverage garden. The Block Party is located just outside the Marriott Exhibit Hall, with easy access between the two spaces.

A “high porch picnic” is a Texas expression for “an exceptionally good time.” Our High Porch Block Party is a nod to Coach Fry’s glorious career as one of college football’s most unique coaches, on and off the field.

The Kids Zone will be filled with Hawkeye and football-themed activities, including blocking and tackling drills, inflatables and more!

New for FRYfest X will be the High Porch Block Party Happy Hour with more entertainment, games, family friendly activities, and beverage garden specials. 

Happy Hour details: The special will be BOGO of Big Grove’s Boomtown! There will also be BOGO of any same kind beer and wine will be served!

Food trucks will be serving food outside of their windows to give attendees great options for food. More details to come.

Bags boards will be available for free play. Check back this summer for details on how to register for the adult tournament.
