Block Parties

Block parties are some of the most popular neighborhood activities in Johnston during the summer months.

Most residential streets qualify for a block party. However, a form is required and must be submitted to City Hall prior to the event. The event organizer should notify neighbors of the event details before submitting the form for approval.

Once the request has been approved, Johnston Public Works will drop off the barricades for the event. The event organizers are in charge of setting up the barricades in the street, but it is important they be set-up so emergency vehicles can still get by. Please note that block party requests for arterial streets, highways and some collector streets will automatically be denied for safety reasons.

For questions regarding the block party process, please call City Hall at 515-278-2344 or download the form (PDF).
