The St. John’s Block Party, hosted by The Church of St. John the Evangelist, started in 2004. The purpose of this community event was simply to bring people of all ages together for a day of music, entertainment, food and fellowship.

Since its inception, the Block Party has grown into one of the premier summer events in the Rochester area. The ongoing success of this one-day event is a result of the strong support from the community, volunteers and our sponsors.

More than 400 volunteers from the Church of St. John help to make the St. John’s Block Party a reality – all in support of the mission to be a welcoming and hospitable community.
