Gloucester Block Party

The 3rd Saturday of every summer month, Gloucester shuts down Main Street and has a free Block Party! There's lots of food, entertainment, shopping, and fun. Let's meetup and stroll Main Street, get a bite to eat and check out the scene!  I don't think the entertainment schedule has been set yet, so I'll update as it gets closer.

    The address for the St. Peter’s Square parking lot is corner of Main Street & Rogers Street, however, use the address for the Cape Ann Brewing Co. for your GPS. The large parking lot is right next to the Brewery.

    Cape Ann Brewing Co.
    11 Rogers Street
    Gloucester, MA 01930

    Thanks! And see you tomorrow at 6:00!! Should be a nice night!

    After we stroll around the Block Party, maybe we'll stop in at the Cape Ann Brewery for a cold beer and some fish n chips? (It's right next to the St. Peter's Square parking lot)

    Hi Sue I live in Lowell and I would like to car pool.

      Hi Beverly, I decided to change my RSVP to no. Will be somewhere all afternoon and decided it would be too much to get to this meetup. Caroline said she was interested in carpooling, maybe you could make arrangements to meet in Peabody.

      August 12, 2013

  • Susan

    Anybody interested in meeting somewhere near Peabody? Maybe north shore shopping center to drive the rest of the way up?

    August 11, 2013

    • CarolineFCS7

      I could meet in Peabody. I'd like to carpool.

      August 12, 2013

    • Susan

      Hi Caroline I changed my RSVP to no. Have to be somewhere all afternoon and figured it would be too much pressure.

      August 12, 2013

  • Susan

    Any one interesting in carpooling? I live in Tewksbury, we can split gas costs and parking cost and parking fees. Thanks!
