The annual Celebrating Patsy Cline Block Party will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. August 31, 2019 in front of the Patsy Cline Historic House, 608 S. Kent St., Winchester. It is an old-fashioned style block party with live entertainment, food concessions by Shaffer’s BBQ and souvenirs staged on Kent St. between Monmouth and Germain streets.

In its tenth year, the annual event is held over Labor Day weekend to celebrate the life and legacy of Patsy Cline and her music -- in honor of the anniversary of her birthday, September 8, 1932. The Patsy Cline Historic House is where she lived from 1948 to 1953 and off and on through 1957 with her mother, Hilda Hensley, and her brother and sister. The two-story house museum opened in 2011 and has been restored to the way it was when her family lived there in the mid-1950s. It is open for tours and is listed as a state and national landmark.

The block party is free to attend with tours of the historic house offered at the reduced price of $5 for the day. Four performances by returning and new entertainers includes tribute singers performing Patsy songs, singer-storyteller, and groups performing songs of her genre.
