National Night Out is Aug. 3 – start planning now!

National Night Out is coming up fast, and now is the time to start making preparations on your block for the night that brings neighbors together. This year, National Night Out is Tuesday, Aug. 3. Minneapolis wants to make it easy for block clubs and neighbors to get started now on their plans.

The City of Minneapolis asks that you register your event, even if you are not blocking your street. It is easy to do and helps us to track the success of National Night Out. Information is available on the Minneapolis National Night Out site and registration is easy. If you want to close your street for your event, street closure is free if you apply by July 14. You need permission of 75 percent of your neighbors to be approved for street closure – please have their names and addresses when you apply (you do not need their signatures). You can also register your event and apply for street closure by calling 311 (or (612) 673-3000).
