Delivery

A City staff member will drop off and pick up the Block Party Trailer. We ask that you find a location that makes it easy to maneuver it. Be sure that the trailer is in a location that it can stay for the duration of the weekend. City staff will drop off the Block Party Trailer on Friday and pick up on Monday.

Be Sure to Find the Right Space

The Block Party Trailer is 7 feet wide, 14 feet long and 7 feet 6 inches tall. The front or tongue side of the Block Party Trailer also needs to be clear for delivery and pick-up for the truck that will be towing. Please make sure no vehicles or other obstructions are blocking it when ready to be picked up. The Block Party Trailer cannot be parked in alleyways.

Know Your Neighbor Micro-Grants

The City of Grand Junction offers micro-grants of up to $250 to neighborhoods to assist with event costs or other purposes that promote getting to know your neighbors. The grant application is available on a first-come, first-served basis until allocated funds are depleted.
