Presented by Makeshift Ensemble and Southern Hospitality Board, Quarter Block Party is a three day music and arts festival on North & South Main Street, Cork taking place each February since 2015.
Quarter Block Party is a series of unique events – aiming to present art in unusual locations; celebrate the street’s unique character; and open up the historic quarter of Cork over a vibrant weekend of fun during the quieter months.
Quarter Block Party’s vision lies in a long-term strategy of investment; in developing audience in order to create and nurture a context for the presentation of exciting, ground-breaking work in Cork. It’s 2016 and our theme is Youth & Revolution! We’ve got gigs in churches, pubs and clubs, celebratory protests, pop-ups in shops and on the street, murals on the walls, and talks about everything from mental health to food.
