BOZEMAN — If you're missing live music, cold drinks, and food, an upcoming block party in Bozeman may be the answer.

A block party sponsored by the Kaj Seifert Foundation for Aspiring Young Artists is set for Saturday, June 19 with organizers blocking off the road (Valley Commons Drive behind the Market at Ferguson Farms) between Tanglewood and Single Barrel Liquor & Bar so you can dance in the street, starting at 3 PM and going until 9.

The Kaj Seifert Foundation for Aspiring Young Artists is a new local foundation designed to provide financial assistance to help young artists get a start in the performing arts. The foundation provides young artists the possibility to learn more about the arts - music, dance, performance, video or audio production and visual arts. Your support may enable a child to buy their first guitar or tap shoes, art supplies or video equipment, or maybe send them to an arts camp.

The foundation is named in honor of Kaj Seifert, a talented local musician lost on July 11, 2020, at the age of 35. It was started by his parents, Don and Chris Seifert, and is governed by a three-person board of directors.
