Block Party

Welcome to the 2023 Block Party Season – we are excited for another fun summer season! The Block Party program is a tool offered by the city to support creative ideas led by community builders to bring their closest neighbours together for camaraderie and conversation.

We are very happy to annouce an amazing initative for our Block Party hosts this year. Not only do hosts receive a Block Party Kit, which includes a $50 gift card to help with party supplies, but all individuals that register and host a 2023 summer Block Party will be entered to win an outdoor party prize pack valued at over $500!  
Party season runs May 1 – September 30, 2023.

To help you get started, here are things to consider:

Locations – best spots would be driveways, yard, local parks and green spaces. Select roadways may be eligible for a block party closure, depending on safety guidelines and neighbourhood approval. Roadways that would not be considered for this program are listed HERE.

Planning – we have great resources for you to review before you start planning:

Booking – party hosts must submit their request online through the registration form a minimum of 14 days before the event date.
Once you’ve completed and submitted the online registration, a staff member will follow-up with the organizer identified on the form.

Should you have any questions, please email or call 780-980-7109.
