Consider teaming up with your neighbors to plan your own neighborhood gathering. Review the map for already-registered August 1 events near you.
Help strengthen our community by organizing or joining your neighborhood’s National Night Out block party Tuesday, August 1.
By organizing your own gathering, you’d be part of a citywide evening of block parties, cookouts, and ice cream socials. You can also choose to attend one that’s already registered. Either way, come out and get to know one another.
Say hello to police officers, firefighters, paramedics, city staff and elected officials as they visit events throughout the city.
Register your event by July 28

About National Night Out
National Night Out is a nationwide effort to make communities safer by building and strengthening relationships among neighbors. Strong neighborhoods help us become more resilient and improve our ability to recover after a disaster.
National Night Out gatherings are one of many City efforts supporting our Strategic Plan goal to create a resilient, safe, connected, and prepared city. Berkeley's National Night Out program is organized by the Berkeley Police Department’s Community Services Bureau.
