National Night Out



National Night Out is America's block party night. An opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other. This years theme is disaster and emergency preparedness. Neighbors are encouraged to organize a block party or other outdoor event on the sidewalk or in the street. During the event, meet and greet, share contact information and develop plans to help one another in an emergency.

If registered with the City of Oakland, neighborhood groups can close their block off for free on NNO only. Registered parties will receive a special host packet.

Wear a mask and physically distance.

When Neighbors Know Each Other, Neighborhoods are Safer!
