National Night Out

National Night Out builds stronger neighborhood spirit, police-community partnerships and lowers crime.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, National Night Out 2020 has been canceled.

Taking our community’s health and safety into consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 National Night Out in Brooklyn Park. It was a hard decision to make, as it is an event we look forward to each year.  National Night Out, which is typically held on the first Tuesday in August, was previously pushed back to October before this official cancellation.

We had many residents express concerns about hosting their neighborhood parties this year. We listened and took their concerns seriously. As much as we want to visit with the community now more than ever, we must temper that with the community’s safety in mind. We hope that next year we can bring a wonderful, large-scale event to our community.

Hosting a party

  • Individual neighborhoods host 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

Registering your party

2020 registration has been closed.

2021 registration will be announced at a future date. You’ll get a goodie bag for your party and a chance for a visit from police, fire or other officials.
