Block Party Request

Your Community Block Party Event Resource Center

Block Party Requests OK to Schedule After June 15. Subject to cancelation depending on COVID-19 restrictions.

Applications for block parties held after June 15th will be accepted by the Village. However,  any block party is subject for cancelation depending on COVID-19 metrics and restrictions in place at the time of the block party.

Please note that as of mid-March, 2021, the Illinois Department of Public Health protocols regarding social events during the COVID-19 pandemic are "the lesser of 100 people or 50% capacity outdoors." Block Party participants are asked to follow the COVID-19 guidelines of wearing face coverings and following social distance guidelines per recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These protocols are in place in an effort to keep our community safe and to slow the spread of the coronavirus. 

To host a block party in your neighborhood, you will need to fill out a Block Party Request form (see below), or pick up a form from the Public Works Department, located at 222 N. Ridge Avenue.  We want you to have a fun, safe and successful block party!  Please take time to carefully review this information. Once your request has been reviewed and approved, you will receive a written confirmation.
