If you don’t have a gathering of your own or just want to join a larger event, come to our block party for activities, games, and food. It’s free to all.
As residents around Berkeley bring neighbors together on national night out, you also have the option to come to a city-run block party complete with activities for kids and food for all.
While we can’t top the importance of connecting with your immediate neighbors, our citywide event offers a chance to meet up with people from around the city as well as staff from a range of departments.
Our city co-sponsored block party will have giant inflatables, an obstacle course, a climbing wall, and more. In the process, we hope to bring neighbors together, strengthen relationships, and build safer and healthier communities.
Free community block party, open to all
