ABOUT GEORGE STREET
Located in the center of historic downtown St. John’s, George Street is one of the premier entertainment districts in North America.
Home to a number of popular events, including the world-famous George Street Festival, Canada’s BIG Birthday Bash celebrations, and the annual Mardi Gras costume contest and street party, George Street has something for everyone.
The George Street Association is proud to provide an exciting, entertaining, and safe experience for residents and tourists alike, and is committed to leveling up the greatest tiny street in North America each and every year.
History – As the premier entertainment district in the oldest city in North America, George Street is like no other. Preserving the unique character and history of our place is fundamental to our continued, shared success.
Safety – The Association is committed to promoting George Street as a safe place to work, visit, and operate a business in the city’s downtown. We’re fortunate to live in such a safe city and province, and we will continue to celebrate that.
People – We’re proud to support local businesses, musicians, and the entertainment industry. Recognizing the diversity of our members, partners, bar owners, and street goers will contribute to the economic growth of our city and province.
