Saturday, Jun 18, 2022, is Neighbour Day!

Celebrate together the connections, safety, care and friendships that we bring to our neighbourhoods. Strong and connected neighbourhoods are important to the health and well-being of our city. We invite you to reach out to the people on your block or building and support a safer, connected and more vibrant city!

Let’s demonstrate why Edmonton is a neighbourly city! 

Inspire others by sharing your Neighbour Day activities on social media, using the hashtags#YEGNeighbourDay, #GetNeighbouring

Short on Planning Time?

Have a Block Social, a quickly planned event on your front step, front lawn or back parking pad. No permit is needed since it is on private property!

If you do something fun with your neighbours on Neighbour Day remember to document it. Take photos or a video, and submit it to the Awesome Block Awards.
