National Night Out

  • Gresham Night Out
    Aug. 2, 2022

    America's night out against crime

    We're planning for small neighborhood gatherings for this year's National Night Out (subject to change based on public health directives from the State of Oregon and Oregon Health Authority for Multnomah County). 

    This event, celebrated in Gresham and in thousands of communities around the U.S., helps make communities safe and raises awareness of anti-crime programs.

    Organize a National Night Out event in your Gresham neighborhood, or plan to attend one for fun.

    All events must be registered by Friday, July 22 to be included on the final event list.
