We’re throwing a HUGE neighbourhood party this December… well actually, YOU ARE!

City of Prospect wants you to host your own street party this festive season. The street parties will be happening all over Prospect on Sunday 13 December from 6pm to 10pm. We are celebrating Christmas together, but not ALL together (thanks Aunty ‘Rona!).

Have you ever wanted to play cricket down your street, have a Christmas drink with your neighbours, or just throw a Christmas party smack down the middle of your street… but don’t know how?

We’ll help you throw one of 10 simultaneous street parties happening on the same day in our awesome City, and we will make sure your event is a cracker by providing some entertainment and festive treats!

Happy Christmas City of Prospect…. from us to you!

What Is Included?

  • Road closures including appropriate signage and contractors (value $750)
  • A festive entertainment package (value $1000)
  • Draft invitation letter to invite your neighbours to your party
  • Event support with ideas, games and activities to make your party super fun!


We’ll send some mobile food vendors to your party at various times during the evening – you can buy ice cream, juices, fairy floss or hot dogs from your driveway!

Children’s entertainment will be provided throughout the event, keep an eye out for jugglers, unicyclists or magicians!


You get to choose one of the following music choices:

  1. A DJ with groovy music from 70s to now
  2. A Jazz band singing carols and old favourites
  3. Guitarist duo to perform rock and tribute songs
  4. Popular music from the last decade DJ set
