Neighborhood Block Parties

Block parties are a great way for residents to come together and build strong neighborhoods through an entertaining atmosphere. The City of Sioux Falls encourages block parties as a way to foster neighborhood cohesion and strengthen our community.

A street closure permit is required for the block parties occurring on a city street; however, the permit fee is waived for block parties. Street barricades are the responsibility of the party organizer. More information on street barricades can be found in the Street Closure/Parade Authorization Permit form.

If music or other entertainment will exceed the noise decibel limits set by City ordinance, an excessive noise permit is required. This permit fee is also waived for block parties.

If the block party intends to use a City park, please refer to the Events in City Parks information.
