Host a Block Party

Due to COVID-19, City sponsored Block Parties in Chestermere have been suspended.  

Should residents wish to host their own gatherings on their property or in public spaces, they are asked to review and adhere to the Alberta Health Services guidance documents for outdoor events and gatherings, and ensure they are maintaining a 2 metre (6 feet) physical distance from anyone who is not in their family or cohort.

Block Parties are held throughout the summer in various neighbourhoods in Chestermere, Langdon and South East Rocky View. They are afternoon or evening BBQs that bring neighbours together for fun, games, and a chance to get to know each other.

Important Info about hosting a party:

  • In order to hold your booking, you’ll be asked to complete and return a contact information sheet and a waiver of liability and release.
  • If you are borrowing the barbecue, you’ll also receive barbecue maintenance and cleaning instructions, and you’ll be asked to provide a credit card number or a $50 deposit cheque (made out to the City of Chestermere).
  • Note that liquor can only be served and consumed on private property, and party goers will be expected to follow the municipality's/County's noise bylaw, which prohibits excessive noise.

Chestermere Specific

  • In order for you to safely close the street, barricades will be dropped off by Public Works up to two days before your block party and picked up one to two days after your event. Barricades may not be available when large community events are being held. One lane must be left open, in case emergency vehicles need access.

Langdon and South East Rocky View Specific

  • Follow all bylaws of Rocky View County and apply for necessary permits with their office.
