Event Details

“National Night Out” Neighborhood Block Parties

Yes, it’s essentially PR for the police, but we’ll take any community-building event that helps reduce tension between law enforcement and the public. Plus, did we mention free food? Every year since 1984 the first Tuesday in August is “National Night Out.” SFPD’s 10 main police stations each host an early evening celebration in a nearby park or playground (with Bayview and Southern District each getting two parties). Hang out with neighbors and have fun in the park. Enjoy a free BBQ, with an officer manning the grill, while kids get to meet cops face to face and oogle their police cruisers and motorcycles up close. 

Tuesday, August 2, most events 5-7 p.m., 12 different block parties all over S.F., Free. sanfranciscopolice.org or @SFSAFE
