Requests available now for block parties July 9 through October 31. Payment will not be required until August.
The City of Dublin offers block party packages to Dublin civic and homeowners associations once per calendar year. The package includes tents, chairs, tables, trash bins, sandwich boards, barricades and a sound system. Association leadership may formally reserve the package in January of each year for block party events falling between May 1 and Oct. 31.
There is a $50 rental fee to use the block party package. Fees were introduced in 2019 due to the increased cost of replacing damaged equipment and staff hours for delivery.
There will be a $100 fee for any additional reservation requests for each association within the same year. The City will deliver the package on Friday afternoon before 3 pm and pick up the following Monday after 6 am from one pre-determined location in your neighborhood. It is the responsibility for the neighborhoods to set up and tear down the equipment, and dispose of any trash within these time constraints.
Only official associations may reserve the packages. This rental is only available for neighborhood/community gatherings. This package is not available nor intended for personal use (i.e. graduation party, garage sale, private event) and will be monitored for appropriate usage. If you are found to have abused this policy, appropriate fees will be accessed and privileges to future block party packages may be revoked.
If you have questions please contact Community Events at 614.410.4510 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
