The Basilica Block Party

The Basilica Block Party began in 1995 as a fundraiser to help pay for the structural restoration of The Basilica of Saint Mary. Today, proceeds from the Block Party are directed through The Basilica Landmark to fund the continued renovation of The Basilica and its campus. These critical investments preserve and protect our landmark today and help to avoid the huge costs of emergency repairs tomorrow.

In addition, a portion of all proceeds from The Basilica Block Party go to The Basilica’s St. Vincent de Paul outreach program, which provides services to those in need, including employment assistance, job training and workshops, transportation assistance and shoes.
