Block Party Trailer#

Block Party Trailer

The Block Party Trailer, a "party in a box", is available for free for your neighborhood event. The trailer includes street barricades, tables, yard games, an inflatable movie screen and projector, and more! 

Neighborhoods may request the Block Party Trailer for events taking place on weekends in June, July, August, and September. Certain blackout dates apply on holiday weekends and during Neighborhood Night Out. 

Block Party Trailer requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis except preference will be given to historically underserved neighborhoods and neighborhoods requesting the Block Party Trailer for the first time.

To request closing a street for a block party, a block party permit is required

Please note: Applicants will be required to clean trailer equipment before and after use with bleach wipes.

A neighborhood block party is a wonderful way to connect the residents of your neighborhood and create a sense of community, and connection. Get your neighbors together to share a meal, games, music, or conversation.

Closing a Street for your Block Party

All available locations to host a block party with street closures can be found using this map, any area outlined in green is an allowed location. Please look at this map to select a location before submitting your application. Complete a Block Party Permit Application for block parties with eligible street closures. The Block Party Trailer has traffic barricades that can be used to close streets on any of the "green streets" on the map but needs a Block Party Trailer Request Form.
