Neighborhood Night Out#
Neighborhood Night Out is an opportunity to celebrate some of the special things that makes Fort Collins such a great place to live - your neighbors and community! Neighborhood Night Out is typically held on the first Tuesday night of August each year.
As part of a nationwide program, neighbors across Fort Collins get outside and connect with their community by hosting "parties with a purpose", combining fun-filled social events like block parties and ice cream socials with educational or community service activities. Ideas for activities to complement parties and address environmental and social sustainability are available in the City's Sustainable Neighborhoods Projects.
Neighborhood Night Out hosts can request visits by City Council, Police Services, or Poudre Fire Authority. City Staff, elected officials, and community partners will not visit events that do not request them.
The first 100 Neighborhood Night Out events registered with the City of Fort Collins Neighborhood Services will receive a $25 gift card for their event needs. Events registered after the official July 15th registration deadline are eligible for gift cards, but will not be on the maps for visits by elected officials, City staff, and public safety staff.
Apartment communities, businesses, and neighborhoods are encouraged to participate! Limited grant funding for Neighborhood Night Out events is available. Applications for grant funding of $150-$500 per neighborhood can be submitted by July 1, 2022 at Neighborhood Services Mini-Grants.
