Night to Unite / Block Parties

Night to Unite banner

Due to precautions related to COVID-19, this year's Minnesota Night to Unite will be observed the first Tuesday of October (Oct. 6) but unfortunately we not be encouraging people to have block parties this year.  That doesn't mean we won't be bringing our community together.  

This year, we are going to be asking you to visit us on that evening for a reverse parade!  Details of this event will be available shortly.   Please follow us on Facebook @WoodburyPoliceFireEMS to get all the fun details as soon as they are available.   

Each year we invite and encourage neighbors to observe Minnesota Night to Unite by holding block parties and neighborhood get-togethers. A great addition to your Night to Unite party on October 6, 2020 would be a visit from Public Safety. Please check back for the link to request public safety staff to visit your Night to Unite celebration. 

Can we block off our street for our Night to Unite celebration or a Block Party?

It's important to remember that some roadways in Woodbury cannot be blocked off in anyway to impede the flow of traffic. Use the link below to search if your location.  

  1. In the upper left hand corner of the map, enter the house number closest to the location of your block party and select the correct address from the drop-down options that will appear.
  2. If the map shows the roadway is green,  you are allowed to place temporary barriers during your party (see note below).
  3. If the roadway is red in color, blocking off the roadway is prohibited.   

Note:  If your street allows for it and you choose to cordon off any portion, barriers must be placed as such to allow for emergency vehicles and residents needing access to the area.

Block Parties and Special Events
Block Parties are a great way for neighbors to get to know each other and to build community anytime. Requests for Public Safety attendance on dates other than Night to Unite should be requested at least two weeks prior to your event and will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Staff will confirm availability five days before your event.  Please do not use the link below to request a Night to Unite visit.
