Minneapolis National Night Out rescheduled to Sept. 15

Residents can check online or email the city to see if their block is registered

The city of Minneapolis has moved its recommended National Night Out date to Sept. 15. 

The annual community event, which sees residents host street parties across the city, typically takes place on the first Tuesday of August, but this was pushed back amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Minneapolis' recommended date of mid-September is actually earlier than is being recommended by National Night Out, which is suggesting Tuesday, Oct. 6.

The new recommended date was announced Wednesday, with residents asked to email crime.prevention@minneapolismn.gov to ask if their block has been registered. 

Those who registered as block leaders should have received a notice about closing streets

A block without a leader could hold a coronavirus-safe event by spreading out across three or four yards to ensure social distancing, according to a city press release. 

The city has provided these guidelines in accordance with the Minneapolis Health Department, Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: 

  • Events are outdoors.
  • People keep their masks on when they’re not eating or drinking.
  • People keep at least 6 feet from others not in their household.
  • Households bring their own food, beverages, utensils, tables and chairs."
