July Talk and The Beaches headlining the Bluewater Health Foundation’s Block Party in September

The Bluewater Health Foundation, alongside title sponsor Carpenter’s Local 1256, announced the lineup for this year’s Block Party.

Headlining on Saturday, September 9 are two Toronto-based and Juno Award winning rock bands: July Talk and The Beaches, with Sarnia’s own Bad Men Association opening.

Friday, September 8 will feature Grace 2, a Tragically Hip cover band, Jagged, an Alanis Morissette cover band and Pearl Jamming, a Pearl Jam cover band.

Sarnia’s Townhall Revival will be kicking off the first evening of the charitable concert of summer.

“We are thrilled to have so many talented Canadian bands performing at this year’s Block Party,” says Kathy Alexander, Executive Director, Bluewater Health Foundation, in a media release.

“This event wouldn’t be possible without the support of our incredible sponsors and the Sarnia-Lambton community. We can’t wait to see everyone there.”

The Block Party is an all ages annual concert series hosted by Bluewater Health Foundation.

Since its start in 2016, the event has grown from a small, one-night event to a two-day festival with a capacity of 2,500 guests per night.

Held at Suncor Agora in Sarnia’s Centennial Park, the event will feature local craft beer and other refreshments, food and artisans from across Lambton County.

The 2023 Block Party supports Mental Health and Addictions at Bluewater Health.

Locally, these services are much needed by both adult and child/adolescent populations, as they continue to see an increase in mental health and addictions related issues and diagnoses in our community.

Over the last seven years, the Block Party has successfully raised over $160,000 in support of these services at Bluewater Health.

This year’s event is proudly supported by Carpenter’s Local 1256, Lambton College, Enbridge, Pembina, Shell, Revelree, Mainstreet Credit Union, Sunbridge Hotel and Conference Centre, Bad Dog, Team Outfitters, Blackburn Radio and Refined Fool.

Tickets are on sale now at Revelree.ca.
