Boulder Is Building Community One Block Party At A Time!

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 11.23.43 AM

For your next Boulder block party, consider reserving the neighborhood block party trailer from the City of Boulder.

The trailer is available for any Boulder resident to reserve — though it must be used for a neighborhood party, which means everyone within some geographic area (you define your neighborhood) must be invited. If you reserve the trailer, it is yours for a weekend ­­— city staff will drop it off to the requested location on Friday afternoon and pick it back up on Monday morning. The idea is that you only have to add food, drink and neighbors — everything else is contained within the trailer for you, making a block party easy and fun.

All permitting requirements still apply with use of the trailer. You will need a block party permit if you are planning to close the street. Type III barricades (required for street closure) are included in the trailer, available at no cost to the host.

Depending on where you plan to utilize the trailer, you will need to follow one of these three processes. You must indicate which process, based on place and use, that you will follow, when you reserve the trailer. Reservation of the trailer itself does not initiate these processes for you.

Reserve the Neighborhood Block Party Trailer today!

** View the contents of the neighborhood party trailer and the care and responsibilities requirements for the event host. Please review the Statement of Liability . **
