Night to Unite

August 3, 2021Night to Unite 2019

Save the date for the 2021 Night to Unite (NTU) on Tuesday, August 3.

Registration for block parties will be open through Monday, August 2, however that does not guarantee a visit from police, fire and/or city leaders.


Night to Unite is a nationwide, annual event that offers residents a unique opportunity to get to know their neighbors, chat with local law enforcement officials, and ultimately build a safer community. 

For more than 20 years, Elk River neighborhoods have organized Night to Unite block-parties, and in 2019 (in 2020 ERPD chose not to participate in NTU for pandemic safety reasons) 56 gatherings were held citywide.

From a backyard barbecue to a pool party, each neighborhood can decide how they want to celebrate the event. Some neighborhoods have potlucks, pizza parties or ice cream socials, while others choose to simply sit on the lawn and visit with one another.
