Open Streets Events

Hosting a street event is a great way to get to know your neighbours in a fun and casual environment. The City of Vincent wants to make it as easy as possible for you to close the road and organise an event on the street, so you can focus on the best bit: meeting new people and getting to know your neighbours better. We can help with both the practical, and, in some cases, also the financial aspect of the event.

Open Streets Events Kit

Our Open Streets Events Kit guides you through all the necessary practical steps.

The main steps to planning an open streets event are:

  1. Plan your party and get support from your neighbours
  2. Contact the City for initial approval
  3. Complete an application for order for Road Closure
  4. Complete the Open Streets Event Application and the Open Streets Grant Application online (see below) 

This application form is designed specifically for local, neighbourhood events for up to 1,500 people that involve a road closure.

If you want to plan a bigger event or one in another location, please have a look here.
