National Night Out

National Night Out neighborhood block party at playground

National Night Out is a nationwide safety event that occurs the first Tuesday in August every year. National Night Out builds stronger neighborhood spirit, police-community partnerships and lowers crime.

Hosting a party

  • Individual neighborhoods hosts their own block parties
  • Invite your neighbors at least one week before the event – 10 houses to 200 houses, it’s up to you
  • Have a picnic, ice cream social, or just meet to talk – every party is different, do what works for you
  • Register your party
