Block Party Request

Your Community Block Party Event Resource Center

No Block Party Requests Accepted During COVID-19 Pandemic

Please note that during the Coronavirus pandemic, the Village is not allowing block parties utilizing public property (street closures). The Village follows all Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) health and safety protocols regarding the COVID-19 pandemic in an effort to keep our community safe and to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The Village will begin accepting Block Party permits again once the state announces that we are in a mitigation phase that allows large gatherings of all sizes can resume , or Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan.

To host a block party in your neighborhood, you will need to fill out a Block Party Request form (see below), or pick up a form from the Public Works Department, located at 222 N. Ridge Avenue.  We want you to have a fun, safe and successful block party!  Please take time to carefully review this information. Once your request has been reviewed and approved, you will receive a written confirmation.
