Help make 2018 the biggest National Night Out event in Fremont’s history!
Start organizing your neighborhood to participate in the 35th Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Join Fremont Police staff along with community organizations, neighborhood groups, and City leaders in celebrating the 35th Annual National Night Out.
The typical way to participate in National Night Out is to organize a block or neighborhood party. Many will organize barbecues or ice cream socials where neighbors share good food, laughter, and updates on what is happening in the neighborhood. National Night Out provides the opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other a little better and sends a strong message to criminals that our community will look out for each other by reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhood. Throughout the night, City staff will make visits to the registered parties where they will share information, network, and answer questions that community members may have.
Registration is now open for Fremont community members to register their parties to participate in this year’s event. Register your event with the Fremont Police Department Online.The registration deadline is 5 p.m. on July 27, 2018, to be considered for a visit by the Police or Fire Department. Our goal is to provide each party with one visit from City staff; however, it will be dependent upon the number of parties and staff who sign up to participate.
Requests for a visit from the Fire Department must be made separately. First register your party and then contact Pam Franklin.
If you plan to block off your street for your celebration, you will need to obtain a block party permit from the City of Fremont by contacting Barbara Yee-Charlson at 510-494-4561 or by e-mail. The deadline to file for a permit is Friday, July 8, 2018. The cost of the permit is $20. See more information about Special Event Permits.
