Block Party 2020
Social connections are more important than ever.
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, where residents have naturally stepped up to help their neighbours during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on everyone, and more than ever, we need to be socially connecting with one another. To help facilitate these connections and follow the public health orders, the City of St. Albert will proceed with modified Block Parties for 2020.
Modified Block Parties
Organize a small Block Party for your neighbours, on your driveway, balcony, apartment/condo parking lot or neighbourhood green space/park.
- Register your block party
- Follow the Alberta Public Health Orders for gatherings
- Plan a Safe Block Party
- Nominate a Good Neighbour
Good Neighbour Day – July 4, 2020
St. Albert’s first ever Good Neighbour Day will be held on Saturday, July 4, to recognize how neighbours are helping one another to manage and cope through the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Good Neighbour Day, we would encourage residents to connect with neighbours through Driveway Dinners. Set up a table for your family on your driveway or apartment patio and enjoy a physically distanced meal with your neighbourhood.
Let us know about your event!
- Share your event by posting a picture and sharing your Driveway Dinner at #T8NTogether
- If you need help with ideas to ensure physical distancing, contact the Neighbourhood Development team at 780-459-1756 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
