National Night Out

National Night Out has been celebrated across North America on the first Tuesday of August since 1983. It's a day when people hold parties to strengthen community cohesiveness and crime resistance, and get to know their neighbors and their local public safety officials. When neighbors get to know each other, they create a connected and safer community. Every year, more than 20,000 people in Portland participate. The Office of Neighborhood Involvement's Crime Prevention Program has responsibility for coordinating National Night Out (NNO) in Portland. 

  • Official date of NNO: Tuesday, August 1st, 2017. In Portland, residents and businesses may also hold a NNO party between Friday, July 28th and Sunday, August 6th, 2017. 
  • Registration is open from June 6th-July 18th.
