Let’s build community one block at a time! Have a block party and show your Lodi Pride

The Lodi Pride Block Party Wagon has everything you need to hold a neighborhood block party and the best part is – It’s Completely Free!   That’s right the Lodi Community Action Team working with local vendors has put together the complete package for you to host a neighborhood block party.

Here’s how it works:

    1.  You decide that you want to have a block party so you contact Paula Enger at paula@lodiaction.org or 608-334-7976.

    2. LCAT sends you a manual that contains everything you need to get started including coupons for discounts and free items from local businesses.  The manual even has invitations and online RSVP tools for you to use to organize the party.

    3. On the day of the party the Lodi Pride Block Party Wagon will be parked on your block.   You and your neighbors set everything up, bring a dish to pass and have a party!

    4. After the party everyone cleans up and puts everything back in the trailer.

    5. You can use the online tools to continue to communicate with your neighbors and get ready to plan the next block party!

      Is there a deposit or any other rental agreement

      There is no deposit to use the Lodi Pride Block Party Wagon.  However, we do ask for a contact from the neighborhood to be responsible for coordinating the drop off and pick up of the Block Party Wagon.   We also ask that an agreement be signed.  The agreement states what is provided in the wagon and that it shall be returned intact and in working order.
