Seattle Night Out is next Tuesday, August 4th. Each summer, thousands of Seattle residents close their streets to celebrate Night Out with block parties. Whether you live in a single-family or multi-family units, it’s a great way to meet your neighbors and enjoy Seattle’s summer weather. These events can be simple potlucks or elaborate affairs with entertainment – it’s really up to you and your neighbors.

Police, fire and city representatives spend the evening visiting events throughout the city. If you’d like to include them, opt-in during your registration.
If Night Out doesn’t work for you and your neighbors, consider hosting a Living Room Conversation as an alternative. Arrange a small gathering of neighbors – this can be in your home or in a community area of a multi-family dwelling. Invite a Seattle police officer to join you. This program allows community members to discuss safety concerns directly with officers working in their neighborhood. It’s simple to arrange and doesn’t take much time.
