The focus of Block Parties is on building connections and relationships between neighbours living in the same street. 

The idea of a Play Street is to bring neighbours together for celebration or play. They allow neighbours to play together in residential streets closed off to vehicle traffic.   

The City supports both Block Parties and Play Street events through planning, operational and permitting support. The purpose of the Block Party and Play Street program is to connect neighbours living in the same street, and is not intended for larger events that invite the general public to attend. For these types of events, depending on location, please visit Neighbourhood Parks & Open Spaces - Neighbourhood Event or Festivals and Events Planning - Roadway Events


The Block Party/Play Street Program is accepting applications from residents to host events between July 1, 2021 - October 31, 2021. The program guidelines and application form have been updated to align with the Province’s Open for Summer Plan and City’s COVID-19 response.
