Join us for Seattle’s 24th Annual Neighbor Day on February 10 and help us kick off 2018 with a celebration of kindness and community!
With all the change, upheaval, and stress in our world right now, we could all use a chance to reconnect with our neighbors, friends, and communities through small acts of generosity. Our Neighbor Day celebration provides the perfect opportunity to do just that!
Neighbor Day is a special day set aside to reach out to neighbors, make new friends, and express thanks to those who help make your neighborhood and community a great place to live. We encourage all Seattle residents to celebrate this day by indulging in random acts of kindness. Residents, businesses, or community groups are all invited to participate however they like. The main goal is simply to reach out and connect with your neighbors through generosity.
Neighbor Day will take place on Saturday, February 10, 2018.
We have made it as easy as possible for you to participate! Below is a list of ideas and resources that can help you plan your Neighbor Day event or activity:
- Do something nice for a neighbor: take them to coffee, clean up their yard, bake them some cookies, invite them for a walk.
- Organize a neighborhood potluck, open house, or work party. It can be as big or simple as you want.
- Need more ideas? We have an extensive list to help you.
- Want to know how your local business or community group can participate? Here are some ideas!
- If your event is open to the public, you can post it to our online events calendar.
- Use our flyer to post around your neighborhood or work area to remind people of the day.
- Share a “great neighbor” story or tell us how you are celebrating by tagging us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and using #NeighborDay.
- Attend one of the many community activities listed on the events calendar. Many Seattle Fire stations along with pools, parks, and neighborhoods are hosting celebrations and work parties.
