Neighbourhood Block Party (May - September)

  • It is a neighbourhood party organized and attended by people in your neighbourhood.
  • The neighbours who want to take part either help organize, show up or both!
  • Block Parties can be held in a number of different venues: on a neighbourhood street (street closure application applies) outside in a public park, inside a community hall, in a neighbour’s home, or a condo common area, to name a few.
  • A Block Party can be a lot of fun and bring neighbourhood residents closer.
  • Block Parties are sponsored by local businesses supplying free items to help make your party a success. Sponsorship
    is limited and varies season to season.

How to Kick-start Planning a Block Party

  • Start with printing off the Tool Kit below. Read the document and follow the party planning suggestions and application instructions.
  • Use the Tool Kit suggestions and tools to reach out to your neighbours to create interest and ask for support.
  • When neighbourhood has committed to a Block Party, complete the application and supporting documents. Submit your application package to the Town Office at least three weeks before your party date (this is to ensure enough time to process the application and street closure is required)

Perks of Throwing a Block Party

  • Have fun while you see this social gathering bring neighbours closer.
  • Neighbours knowing each other better opens the door to neighbourhood organized activities such as spring cleaning, snow shoveling, gardening, etc.
  • Closer neighbours create safer communities and instill a sense of pride and belonging in your community.
