Sign-up and plan your Neighbour Day event

Planning your Neighbour Day event is fun, easy and a great way to meet your neighbours! Here are four quick steps to get you started:

Step 1

Reach out to your neighbours to help plan your event. Together, determine the type of event you want to have. This could include hosting a block party, organizing a picnic at your local park or lending a helping hand to tidy up a local green space. You decide.

Step 2

Have the initial details of your event in place?

Did you know that you can invite the mayor or your councillor to your community party? Consider including some of your local heroes in the Calgary Police Service or Calgary Fire. They’d love to join your event!

Submit an invitation request to the Mayor.

To invite the Calgary Police Service, send email to

To extend an invitation to the Calgary Fire Department, Request a City Service at 311 Online Services. Select 'Fire Dept. - Fire Truck Booking' in Service Type menu.

Please have the following information ready before submitting invitations:

  • Date, time and location of the event
  • Estimated number of attendees
  • Type of event
  • Neighbourhood
  • Contact information

We will do our best to accommodate all Neighbour Day invitations but due to the large amount of requests we cannot guarantee specific attendance at this time. You will receive a response to your invitation prior to the event.

Step 3

Thinking of closing your street or hosting your event at the local park? Make sure to secure your FREE block party permit or green space permit by May 27. When filling out your permit application, please read the procedures and complete a block party petition form to ensure your event qualifies. Learn more about Neighbour Day permits.

Step 4

Start planning with your neighbours. Visit the Neighbour Day Tools and Resources page for event templates and a sample checklist.
