THE SCENE

The Basilica Block Party began in 1995 as a fundraiser to pay for the $9.5 million structural restoration of The Basilica of Saint Mary, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Proceeds from the event will fund the continued renovation of The Basilica. Five percent of proceeds have been designated for the St. Vincent de Paul outreach program to serve those in need. The program provides food and shelter to nearly 3,500 people a month, as well as shoes and transportation assistance to 250 people every week.
