What is Neighbour Day?

Held on the third Saturday of June, Neighbour Day is a time for Calgarians to celebrate our neighbourliness and strong community spirit by organizing community events such as front yard barbecues, garden parties, picnics, clean-ups or afternoon teas in a local park.

Neighbour Day Ideas

Here are a few ideas on how you and your neighbours can celebrate Neighbour Day:

  • Host a block party on your residential street.
  • Have a neighbourhood picnic at a local park.
  • Host a neighbourhood potluck or front yard BBQ.
  • Host afternoon tea in your backyard.
  • Organize a parade of lawn parties.
  • Hold a street chalk drawing competition.
  • Grab a Litter Cleanup Kit, get together and tidy up your park or natural area.
  • Help your neighbour with their spring cleaning or gardening.
  • Make up your own way to celebrate your community spirit in Calgary.

The idea is to meet neighbours, make new friends, have fun and maybe work together on a project that benefits the entire community.
