Block Party in a Box / everything you need to plan and execute a successful block party

06. Materials & Equipment

Depending on the scale of your block party, the materials and equipment needed can vary greatly. If you’re planning a neighbourhood-wide event, you might need a stage and a sound system. If you’re planning something more local, at the street level, you might just need a few tables and chairs.

If you need equipment, ask your local community/resource centre, churches, or even funeral homes if they can help. Often times these sources are more than happy to offer what they can. Be sure to solicit help from your local social network, too. Don’t be afraid to ask!
