Meet your neighbours, know your community.
Block parties are a great way to build social connections and improve your community. Knowing your neighbours can make a difference:
It’s easier to get help from neighbours we know in a medical or other emergency than from a friend 10 minutes away.
Research shows that when neighbours know and trust each other, streets are safer and people are healthier and happier.
Organizing a block party with the City of Saskatoon is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
1. visit saskatoon.ca/blockparty for an application form
2. collect signatures from 51% of the homes on your block
3. return the form with a $20 application form
The City will deliver barricades to close your street on the date you choose and pick them up when the party is over. All noise and alcohol bylaws must be observed.
