Block Parties

Block Parties in Cleveland Heights

Block parties are a long-standing tradition in Cleveland Heights! Any given weekend during the summer months, you will find neighbors getting together to have a good time.


The City will provide barricades to keep your street free from traffic during party hours. To reserve street barricades, Email Community Relations at least two weeks before the party. You will need to provide:

  • The date and time of the block party.
  • The intersections to be barricaded.
  • The name, address and phone number of the person to receive the barricades.
  • The street to be blocked.

The barricades will be delivered to the contact person's tree lawn on the last workday before the block party.

Make the Day Fun

The City will provide a volleyball and net free of charge. Tie the net between two trees and have fun! Reserve the equipment when you call for barricades and pick it up at City Hall on the last workday before the party. There is a limited number of volleyballs, so equipment is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Other ideas for a fun party are relay races or a water balloon toss, a bicycle parade, white elephant sale, pet show, baking contest or a talent show. Need more suggestions or have questions? Call 216-291-2323 or Email Community Relations.
