Community Events

If you’re thinking of holding a small community event in a park or a party on a residential street, we’ve made the process easier, simpler and in some cases free of charge!

Haringey is a diverse borough, with strong communities that communicate and mix in a positive way. We want to encourage this further and bring our streets and open spaces alive with activity.

Events may celebrate a particular occasion or simply bring neighbours in a community closer together. Community events can breathe new life into streets and open spaces, while building a stronger sense of society.

We’re keen to encourage more community events by offering easily accessible advice and guidance to anyone thinking of putting on an event. Just follow the guidance below to get started...

Street parties

Street parties are a great way for neighbours to get to know each other or celebrate a particular event. We have now made the application process easier and have scrapped the application fee so now there's no reason not to have a party! Information on how to organise and apply to host a street party can be found on our street parties page.

Events in parks

Haringey's award winning parks are a great backdrop to hold an event, and we want to see more organised events taking place in our parks, making them come alive with activity! For very small events (where less than 100 people will attend) we have scrapped the application and hire fees. Find out more on our park events page.
