To apply for a Block Party:

Download the application (street closure application and block party trailer application are the same)

Create a legible map of the area that should be blocked off in your neighborhood, using X’s to show where the barricades will go during your event.

If you wish to reserve the Block Party Trailer, you will need to do either of the following: Sign a liability waiver, provide proof of a neighborhood liability insurance policy, or purchase a TULIP policy (additional information below)
