Save the date for the 2021 Night to Unite (NTU) celebration on Tuesday, August 3. You can still register your block party through Monday, August 2 at 4:30 p.m., however we can't guarantee a visit from a city staff member or elected official if registered after July 20.
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. Visit ElkRiverMN.gov/NightToUnite for more information.
