Block Party Program

The City’s block party program runs each year and encourages Spruce Grove residents to get to know their neighbours while becoming more connected to the community.

During the block party season, residents are encouraged to submit a block party application for a chance to receive a block party food voucher and discount from Save-On Foods on their block party grocery order.

Top reasons to host a block party

  • To get to know who lives on your street. Neighbours who know each other, are more likely to look out for one another.
  • To establish a sense of belonging to your neighbourhood and community.
  • To create a connected neighbourhood where neighbours help each other.

For more ideas on how to get to know your neighbours, and others ways to connect at the block level, check out the Connect the Block page.

Frequently asked questions

No. You are responsible for advertising your party; however the City provides invitations that you can print and handout. 


There are a limited number of barricades available through Enforcement Services.  Please request barricades on the application form and you will be notified of the drop-off and pick-up time.  Enforcement Services will drop-off and pick-up the barricades.


Make sure that everyone has clear access to their property during the event.  Also, be courteous with the noise level and remember that loud amplification of music is prohibited.

We recommend that you host your block party in a public space (street, alley or park) as it increases shared responsibility of the event.  If your block party is going to be held on public land, you must register your event with the City.  Other locations for hosting a block party include a backyard, garage or common area/room in a condominium complex.

Everyone who registers a party with the City will be eligible to receive a $125 block party food voucher, courtesy of the City of Spruce Grove. Block parties must be held between May 1 and Sept. 5.  Save-On Foods will also offer 15% off the remaining grocery order for your block party.  Community Peace Officers and/or Fire Services team members may also drop by your event to introduce themselves in the community. 

Special consideration by the City of Spruce Grove must be given to block party events that include the use of bouncers, jolly jumps, slides, petting zoos, pony rides, etc. on public property.  Please contact the City Clerk’s office at 780-962-7634 ext. 151 for more information.  Please adhere to the City of Spruce Grove bylaws regarding fire code, fireworks, noise and alcohol.
