Seacoast Digital Fast Kickoff Party

Seacoast Digital Fast Kickoff Party
Friday, August 5 in Block Six

During the weekend of August 5th-7th, members of the Seacoast community are embarking on a 48-hour Digital Fast. That means no phones, no tablets, no computers, no Internet, no TV for an entire weekend. Scary, right? But also kind of intriguing and maybe even a little exciting, too? Well, we are hereby challenging YOU to join us.

It’s easy. On Friday, August 5th at 6:30pm, you take all of your digital devices, turn them off, put them in a drawer and walk away. Spend a weekend free from the alerts and pings of the 24-hour news/entertainment/social media cycle. Make people wonder what you’ve been up to. Enjoy quietly reflecting on something instead of instantly sharing your opinions with the world. Do one thing at a time. Give your eyes and thumbs a rest. Look up instead of down. Then, at 6:30pm on Sunday, August 7th, go back to the drawer and resume your relationship with the digital world. Or, who knows? Maybe you’ll decide you’re in no rush to get back to it.

Block Six is hosting the official Seacoast Digital Fast Kickoff Party. Come by for Happy Hour anytime between 4:30 and 6:30pm. Find out how others are preparing for life “off the grid”, see what Digital Fast-related events are going on that weekend, and share your thoughts, concerns and expectations (even if it’s to tell us that we’re crazy and that there’s no way you’re doing this).

For more information on the Seacoast Digital Fast, visit and check out our Facebook page. (Yes, we are using social media to promote a break from social media).

Are you up for the challenge?
