Each year on the first Tuesday of August, neighborhoods across the country dedicate one summer evening to celebrating and strengthening their commitment to a safer community.

This year’s Eden Prairie Night to Unite event will take place Tuesday, Aug. 1. Neighbors in Eden Prairie will join together to celebrate their neighborhoods, their city and anything else they wish to use as reasons for gathering. It is an opportunity to come together, meet your neighbors, get to know them better and grow the sense of community we have here in Eden Prairie.

If you would like to have representatives from the Eden Prairie Police or Fire departments visit your gathering, visit and fill out the online registration form. Registrations are due Tuesday, July 25.

As is tradition in Eden Prairie, the City encourages residents to donate food to PROP, an Eden Prairie food shelf.  The neighborhood that donates the most food (by weight) will win an ice cream social with members of the Police and Fire Departments, as well as a bounce house donated to the party by Kinderberry Hill Child Development Center.
