A neighbourhood block party is an opportunity for people to meet and get to know each other. Edmonton City Council has waived the $100 fee for Block Parties.
A permit (free) is still required from the City when a block party is held on a location where there is traffic (streets, back alleys, or cul-de-sacs). The permit is required to block off the street.
Signatures from all your neighbours in the block party zone are required on the permit to show support for the event, whether or not they plan to attend.
The permit must be submitted at least 2 weeks before the event. The permit includes pick up and delivery of road barriers. Alcohol consumption is not permitted on city roads or public property.
