The City of Surprise is committed to building quality neighborhoods and what better way to get to know your neighbors than by throwing a party! You can also invite city staff to your party to find out what services are available to you.
The Neighborhood Services Division offers free rentals of its Block Party Trailer. The trailer comes equipped with everything you will need to get your Block Party started including: chairs, tables, coolers, canopy tents, sports equipment, name tags, garbage bags, a PA-stereo system, lighting, and a generator. City staff will deliver the trailer and be present during the event.
You can also receive a Block Party Kit, which includes flyers and posters to help spread the word about your party. We’ll even help with refreshments! Submit receipts for up to $75 in local grocery store charges, and the city will reimburse you! Plus, we’ll cover up to $125 towards the cost of renting a bouncy house (the inflatable domes that children love to jump around in)!
To reserve the Block Party Trailer:
Call Neighborhood Services at (623)222-1550 to request an application, download one here or pick one up at the Surprise City Hall, 16000 N. Civic Center Plaza, during regular business hours.
Complete the application and send it back to the City of Surprise Block Party Program Coordinator. Reservations are required at least to two weeks (and up to 90 days) in advance of the event and are based on a first-come-first-served basis.
