Block Parties

Block Party 2021 

Social connections are more important than ever. We're pleased to announce Block Party registrations will open on July 5.

Background

The City of St. Albert has a proud Block Party tradition. Since 2008, over half of our streets have participated in the initiative. Many participating streets have made their block party an annual staple. As a result, this program has helped build a strong sense of community, connectedness and a culture of care in St. Albert.

How to have a safe Block Party

Street Closure

If you plan to host your party on the street, you will need permission from the City. In order to receive this a “Permission to Block the Street” form must be completed and returned to the Community & Social Development (CSD) office at least 10 days prior to your party.

Once your request is approved you will be able to access official barricades to block the street during your party.

The form can be faxed to 780-458-1260, dropped off in person or emailed to csd@stalbert.ca

Something Fun

Free Resources

When you register your Block Party, you can access lots of great resources for free:

  •  Free Block Party Resources
  • Recreation equipment is available to borrow from the City. There are 10 recreation grab-bags available. These include a variety of games and equipment for use at your party. The grab-bags are available on a first come first serve basis.
  • Art and cultural activities, as available
  • Visits from Mayor and our Council members

More ... new opportunities added every year!

Free Food

Neighbourhood Watch and Citizen’s Patrol will provide free hamburgers, hot dogs and buns for St. Albert Block Parties in an effort to promote safety in our community. 

In return, block party organizers are asked to deliver crime prevention flyers to every home on their street prior to the party.
