Block Party Program

Social connections are more important than ever.   We are pleased to announce the Block Party Program.

The Block Party Program was created to help create a safer, more connected community.  Knowing your neighbours makes a safer community, helps newcomers feel welcome in our beautiful town, and encourages networking.

The Town of Oxbow and Southern Plains Co-op is pleased to sponsor the block Party program for June, July, and August. (No parties to be sponsored July 1st weekend, please join the Town in their Canada Day Celebrations)

  • Find a champion of your block to register at least 7 days before and organize.
  • The Town of Oxbow and the Co-op will supply the number of hotdogs, hamburgers, and buns requested for the party attendees. (Food orders must be provided a minimum of  7 days in advance)
  • The town will block off the street if requested in the application/OR we will permit the residents to block it off themselves for the time set in their application.

To qualify you:

  • Must include everyone on the blocks you are inviting.
  • If inviting the side connecting street, or numerous blocks, everyone must be included on the streets invited
  • Only include the people who RSVP to the party for the food orders
  • Remember, alcohol is only permitted on private property, not on town streets or parks.
