The Last block party in Gloucester is the third party in the series of three to celebrate Summer. Pop Gallery is always fired up for some fun and stays open late.

A portion of Main Street in Gloucester is closed off from 5-10pm, allowing for live music from local bands, street performers, outdoor dining, children’s activities. This family-friendly event has something for everyone and truly provides a spectacular setting for perfect summer night!

Each June, Gloucester celebrates the patron saint of fishermen, St. Peter. Music plays every evening, there’s a Sunday morning open-air mass and Sunday afternoon is the blessing of the fishing fleet. A small carnival creates a festive experience. Sporting events are held each day, including the Greasy Pole and Seine Boat Races. A long-standing Gloucester tradition not to be missed!
