Whether we live in an apartment, house, duplex, or ADU, we all share our space with amazing people that we call our neighbors. But when was the last time we got together with them simply to socialize and celebrate?
If it’s been awhile, then we have a neighboring assignment for you. Organize a neighborhood block party! Block parties come in all shapes and sizes. Hosting one can be as simple as asking your immediate neighbors over to BBQ in the backyard or as ambitious as closing the street for a mariachi band, corn-hole tournament, and pet parade.
On July 10th, the Office of Neighborhood Involvement is hosting a block party information fair, where attendees can learn the ins and outs of hosting a great neighborhood party.
Sometimes the hardest part of throwing any event is getting people to show up. But have no fear – SE Uplift is here to help you spread the word. We’ll be at the information fair with template flyers, invitations, posters, example activities, and more.
Below you will find 3 example flyers to get you excited and inspired.
1. The No Nonsense Invite.
Want to throw a block party, but simply stretched too thin to create your own invitation from scratch? Use a template – like the ones created by good.is for neighborday.
2. The Nostalgic Invite.
Do you miss the good old days? Want to have some good clean fun with your neighbors? Make a flyer with a retro vibe, like Optimus did for their block party.
3. The Hip Invite.
Will your block party have lawn games, microbrews, and live music? Then look no further than Tacoma’s super rad posters for inspiration.
