In Northside, whether you have lived in the neighborhood for over 50 years or just a few months, you are a neighbor! Our Neighborhood Block Events celebrate and connect neighbors all year round. If you live in Northside, why not consider hosting an event on your porch? Let’s celebrate together!

Want to be a host? 

In Northside/Pine Knolls, the front porch is more than just a physical place. It is a restorative space where residents share life history, welcome new neighbors, and celebrate home; a place where many long-time Northside residents have made and continue to make history. Porch parties celebrate and continue the longstanding role of the front porch in building community.

What does a porch party look like?

Anything you want! Neighbors have hosted cookouts, hot cocoa on the porch, an ice cream social with a water balloon fight, s’mores over a fire pit, lemonade on the porch, and more. We’ll cover the cost of food and supplies, and we’ll help with transporting tables, chairs, and other items to your house and back to our office. 

Be part of the great tradition of hosting neighbors on your porch or in your yard. Email if you want to host an event!
