24 Blogs with Ideas for Planning a Block Party

Published on May 8, 2013, by in Sitters.

Do you know all of your neighbors?  If you would like to get to know your neighbors, one way to go about doing so would be to host a block party. You don’t have to do all of the planning yourself or pay for all of the food.  Talk to a couple of people on your block and try to get someone to help you do the planning and executing of the event.  Create some flyers to put up around the block.  Ask people to bring chairs and a dish to pass.  Come up with a few things for the kids to do.  Often, you can get a bounce house donated for the event if it’s on a weeknight.  Then all you need to do is make some food and you’ve got a party!  These 24 blog posts will help you every step of the way.


You can create posters to hang around the neighborhood if you are inviting the whole neighborhood, but if you are just inviting those people on your block then you might want to create a flyer on your computer and make copies at a local copy shop.  Sometimes you can get this service donated as well if you ask.  Make sure that you either hand the flyers to the homeowner or attach them to the front door somehow, because it’s illegal to put things into people’s mailboxes. For more help in creating flyers, check out these eight blog entries.


Whether you are hosting the block party or just going to one, you can find some tasty recipes in these eight blog articles to make and take to the party.  You don’t have to spend a fortune to make a lot of food.


Face painting, bounce houses and music – once you have these you’ve got yourself a block party! You may find that one of your neighbors is an amateur DJ or plays in a garage band and would entertain the crowds for free.  You never know until you ask.  For more ideas on activities for your block party, read these eight blog posts.
