National Night Out

National Night Out is a community-building opportunity to raise awareness of community policing and for residents to get to know neighbors, first responders, and other City staff. This year, there are two ways for you to celebrate with the City of Denton.

National Night Out Kickoff Party
Monday, Sept. 30
5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Denton Civic Center
321 E. McKinney St.

National Night Out Neighborhood Parties
Tuesday, Oct. 1
6 – 9 p.m.

Attend Citywide Kickoff Party

You’re invited to a community celebration from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 30 at the Denton Civic Center (321 E. McKinney St.). Join first responders and City staff for an evening of free food, drinks, carnival games, and more. This family-friendly kickoff is an opportunity for everyone in our community to gather the day before National Night Out.

Host a Neighborhood Party

On Tuesday, Oct. 1, you are encouraged to turn on porch lights, open doors, and spend the evening outside with neighbors. How your neighborhood celebrates is up to you; many neighborhoods host activities such as cookouts, neighborhood walks, block parties, or pool parties.

Register Your Event

If you or your neighborhood would like City of Denton Police Officers and other city representatives to attend your National Night Out gathering on Tuesday, Oct. 1, please fill out the registration form.
