Strong neighbourhoods are important to the health and well-being of our whole city. When neighbourhoods thrive, the people who live there thrive too.
Neighbour Day started in June 2014 to celebrate the incredible outpouring of support and generosity neighbours demonstrated after the 2013 floods. We want to continue to celebrate one of the things that makes Calgary such a great city — our strong and caring communities.
Neighbour Day now provides the opportunity for Calgarians to celebrate our community spirit, kindness and resilience through the pandemic.
Reach out to your neighbours to help plan your event details, such as:
Invite a small group of nearby neighbours for a backyard or driveway get-together
Set up a neighbourhood scavenger hunt
Decorate your windows, fence or patio
Go for a walk in small groups to explore your neighbourhood and local parks
Organize a virtual meal or BBQ
Organize a small community clean-up using our TLC Kits.
Or make up your own way to celebrate your community spirit (in line with COVID restrictions)
Share your experience with us through social media by using #yycNeighbourDay.
The Kincora Community Association will sponsor any event on Neighbour Day that includes at least 5 homes and invites at least one KCA board member to attend for $100.
