Saturday block party to feature live comedy, activities

Comedian Adam Bush is one of three people performing stand-up during the Comedy on Dewey block party on Saturday.

A comedy event and block party planned for Saturday will be a taste of what is to come for Dewey Street as two new businesses make big plans for downtown Bartlesville.

Comedy on Dewey is a free block party starting at 6 pm on the 300 block of Dewey Ave. Three Tulsa-based comedians will perform and several stores on the street will stay open late, setting up cornhole, a photo booth, popcorn, coloring, sidewalk chalk and other activities.

Entrepreneur Adrienne Kallweit said the event was born from smaller plans – her family is planning to open two businesses on the street and wanted to plan an event to draw people downtown as the businesses come together.

Soon, neighboring businesses signed on and the event grew.

“It went from this little party to get awareness to the street to this really great … we’re almost sold out of tickets,” Kallweit said.
