Hosting a neighbourhood block party

A neighbourhood block party is an opportunity for neighbours to get together, meet each other and have some fun. Block parties are a great way to build social connections.

You can host a party in your backyard or garage. If you choose to do this, it is on private property and you are not required to complete a City of Airdrie neighbourhood block party application. If you are considering using a road, cul-de-sac, or neighbourhood park as a public space, permissions is required from the City of Airdrie. 

Applications must be submitted at least three weeks prior to your event. A review by a Technical Event Services team will approve or require additional information for your application within two weeks.
