Quarter Block Party is a three day music and arts festival on North and South Main Street, Cork City, taking place on the first weekend of February. 2018 will host the fourth edition of the festival.
Over the last 3 years, the festival has grown a dedicated audience and hosted over 150 performances in bars and venues as well as non-traditional spaces; charity shops, off-licences, churches and public parks. Quarter Block Party is a unique event aiming to present art in unusual locations and celebrate the street and city's unique character. By working in close collaboration with traders and residents in the area and inviting the most exciting independent artists locally, nationally and internationally, we aim to open up the street through an exciting weekend of art & culture.
Quarter Block Party's vision lies in a long-term strategy of investment; in developing audiences and participants, to create and nurture the artists, culture and heritage. Making North & South Main Street the platform, the stage, the canvas – for the presentation of exciting, groundbreaking work in Cork.
