The Get Lit Summertime Block Party!!!

July 3, 2021

What's more Get Lit than Summertime!?

What's more Summertime than a block party!?

What's more block party than You + hundreds of your closest poet pals!?


The Get Lit Summertime Block Party!!!


Join us on Thursday July 8th at the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica from noon 'til sundown for an all day line up of Get Lit's hottest poets celebrating the world premiere of Summertime! We're taking over the whole block with poetry, music, dancing, workshops, autographed Get Lit & Summertime swag, and more. What better way to celebrate the release of this groundbreaking movie and the 27 Get Lit poets who created it than with a finally-in-person block party bash in the most poppin'est part of the city! All ages, all day, all free, poetry for all people! COME THRU!!!


It all started with a poem. Join us as we celebrate these youth poets in their journey from classic slams and open mics, to the big screen.
