Neighbour Day

Saturday, June 20, 2020


What is Neighbour Day?

Held annually on the third Saturday of June, Neighbour Day is an opportunity to get together with your neighbours and celebrate Calgary’s strong community spirit.

Neighbour Day began in 2014 to celebrate the incredible outpouring of support and generosity neighbours demonstrated after the 2013 floods. It has evolved into an annual celebration of what makes Calgary such a great city – our strong and caring communities. Neighbour Day continues to grow each year.

Our next Neighbour Day will take place on Saturday, June 20, 2020.

Neighbour Day Ideas

The City welcomes all Calgarians to celebrate and encourages as many people as possible to host local community events.

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.
