Building Safe & Caring Neighbourhoods
Block parties are a fun way to get to know your neighbour! Getting together with neighbours for a warm evening of fun and food is an enjoyable way to meet and renew connections among the people in your area. Neighbours who know each other, look out for one another. This active participation in the community is a critical element in developing a caring and safe community.
Help us reach our goal of 150 Block Parties in 2017 to celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday! Block Parties registered in 2017 will receive:
• The ‘Canadian Shield’ official Canada 150 rose bush
• A visit from the St. Albert Canada 150 Ambassador
• An invitation to the City-wide Downtown Block Party on September 8, 2017

- Frequently Asked Questions
- Register your 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.
