Thinking ahead to summer block parties?
Block Party Applications
The City of Saskatoon accepts applications for block parties at least 5 business days before the date of the event. The fee is $20 and is non-refundable (we accept cash or cheques for payment).
The barricades will be dropped off by the City Yards crews, either the night before or on the day of the block party at one of the ends of the street/crescent. Once the block party is over, the barricades should be placed back where they were originally found, and the City crews will pick them up in a day or two.
If the party is rained out, the party can be re-booked until December 31st of the current year only. If for some other reason the block party is cancelled, Infrastructure Services must be notified in advance at: 975-2454, so they do not deliver the barricades to the block in question.
All noise and alcohol bylaws are in effect.
- 51% of the people on the block involved have to sign the Release Form.
- Names (only 1 person from each household to write their names down)
- Telephone number(s)
- Day they wish to start and end the party
- Lowest house number and highest house number of the people who signed the release form.
If there is a bus route on the street/crescent involved, the Infrastructure Services Department would need to find out whether or not the block party can be allowed.
The above information will only be accepted on the designated City of Saskatoon Release Form and no other forms will be accepted for Block Party Applications.
Once the above information is gathered, please return with cash or cheque to:
Infrastructure Services Department
3rd Floor – 222 3rd Avenue North
