Quality Block Party is now one year old! Our first event was programmed congruently with the 2017 ECMAs in Uptown Saint John. Since then the Block has grown and made many new friends. We have two annual flagship festivals, with the 2018 dates being April 27th-29th and August 9th-12th. Our mandate at the Quality Block Party is to promote and support artists in New Brunswick and beyond. We have brought NB artists to showcase in festivals such as Halifax Pop Explosion and Pop Montreal. We are committed to celebrating the strength of NB musicians,  and promoting safer spaces and community building.
