Block party may be held between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.
Please note that block parties are only allowed on unclassified neighborhood streets. Streets noted with a thin grey line are eligible for block parties.
For street classification information, please refer to WSDOT’s Classification System.
Block parties may be feasible on minor or major collector streets, but would require further administrative review through the Special Events permit process. Please note that the Special Events permit process requires a fee and a longer review time.
If you wish to request a visit from Eastside Fire & Rescue, please submit this form with two weeks advance notice.
Please note that we cannot guarantee Police or Fire availability for your event. Depending on service demands and calls for service, they will try and stop by your event, if requested.
