National Night Out is America’s block party night, an opportunity for residents to organize a barbeque, ice cream social, or other event that is designed to both strengthen neighborhood spirit and unity, and raise crime prevention awareness, by helping neighbors get to know each other.
National Night Out sends a simple, yet profound message: “when neighbors know each other neighborhoods are safer.”
Party hosts who register with the City are eligible for visits by City staff. The City will provide a small gift to each party hosts as well. We encourage all Neighborhood Watch Groups and all other neighborhoods to organize a party on their block!
For more information and to register, visit or call 510-238-3091.
