Neighbourhood events

The Neighbourhood Events program will help you take your idea for a neighbourhood event to the next level! Plan and implement your neighbourhood event with the support of our Neighbourhood Development Coordinators.

Applications & deadlines

Our Neighbourhood Development Coordinators can help support your event annually from April to September. Watch for the 2017 application period which opens on April 3, 2017.

Neighbourhood Event Application Guidelines

Why plan a neighbourhood event?

  • Get to know who is in your neighbourhood
  • Encourage neighbourliness and have fun with your neighbours
  • Neighbourhood gatherings provide opportunities for neighbours to meet and strengthen existing relationships
  • Increasing the number of neighbourhood events in your community creates more opportunities for people to connect

Some examples of neighbourhood events:

  • Block party, neighbourhood picnic, themed gatherings
  • Neighbourhood park/stream clean-up, neighbourhood spruce-up
  • Free-cycling days
  • Seed exchange
  • Porch concert, sidewalk chalk mural, art jam
