The FRYfest High Porch Block Party is an outdoor area that includes a 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.

High Porch Block Party Happy Hour returns in 2019 with more entertainment, games, family friendly activities, and beverage garden specials. 

Happy Hour details and specials will be released soon.

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. Click here to register for our FRYfest Bags Tournament. 

The Kids Zone will feature a bounce house, activities from the Iowa Children’s Museum, face painters, and glitter tattoos! This year, the Kids Zone will be inside the World’s Largest Hawkeye Tradeshow and will be open 10am-8pm!
