It's America's Night Out Against Crime! 

The "24th Annual National Night Out" (NNO) has been scheduled for Tuesday, August 7, 2007. Come on out and meet your neighbors, old and new and connect with City of Berkeley services - Fire, Police and City Staff members.  This is a great opportunity to share stories, listen to music, premiere your new band or get together with friends. Neighborhoods across the city are looking forward to spending time out with neighbors. 

Download a printable flyer here to distribute to neighbors on your block.

In the coming weeks, the blocks that are celebrating will be posted here.  Make sure to check back to see if a block party is happening near you. We look forward to seeing you out there!
The City Manager is waiving the $15.00 Block Party Permit fee for neighborhood groups who will be participating in National Night Out on August 7, 2007. 

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to:

  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and community partnerships; and

  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
