Block Party Permits and Movie Kits Still Available

Block Party Permits and Movie Kits Still Available
Posted on 08/03/2022

There is still plenty of warmer weather to enjoy this year and take advantage of the city's block party permits and new movie kit program.

Both efforts are designed to encourage neighborhood gatherings that build trust among neighbors and strengthen community connections so neighbors may learn to rely on each other for information or a helping hand.

Block Party Permits
The city of Aurora has offered block party permits for many years, but the process is changing from how it’s been done in the past.
The new online application portal remains open through Oct. 31, and two different households on the block must apply for the permit. Permit applications must be submitted at least 14 days in advance of an event.
Block party permits are only required if neighbors want to block off a city street or cul-de-sac with barricades for a neighborhood event.
Block party permits are not intended for private parties or events related to political affiliations, commercial or religious organizations, or for neighbors who host a party on their private property.
Street barricades will be available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis to approved applicants to ensure parties may be held safely. Applicants must pick up the barricades from the contracted vendor, and only a limited number of barricades are available each week.
For 2022, block party season is June 1 through Oct. 31. To apply and for tips on how to host a successful block party, visit

Aurora Movie Kit Program
Groups registered with the city’s Neighborhood Registration Referral Program are invited to borrow a city-supplied movie kit to host a movie night as part of the Aurora Housing and Community Services Department’s ongoing efforts to bring neighbors together.
Two movie kits are available to serve the community at this time. Each kit includes a movie screen, projector, Blu-Ray/DVD player, sound system and microphone, and all relevant extension cords and cables. Movies are not included.
The Movie Kit Program is available for check out Thursday through Sunday year-round.
To learn more and apply to reserve the kit, visit For questions, contact Felipe Vieyra at [email protected] or 303.739.7258.
The Neighborhood Registration Referral Program allows neighborhoods, community groups, business associations and homeowners’ associations to register with the city’s Community Engagement Coordinator Program to receive notice and comment on nearby proposed developments, and receive information on events, programs of interest and important city notifications.
