Block Party Permit Application

The 2024 Jumping Jack registration portal will open on Monday, April 15 at 8am.

For a block party to be approved and issued by the Chicago Department of Transportation, the Aldermanic Office must enter the permit request in which the block party is taking place in the Service Request (CSR) system. Your permit will be emailed to you. If you have questions, please email [email protected]

Entry of the request constitutes the Aldermanic request for a recreational street closing following the provisions of Section 9-12-040 of the Municipal Code of the City of Chicago.

NOTE: I/we understand all C.F.D. equipment is considered “in-service,” meaning if an emergency occurs, it will take priority and the C.F.D. will respond to the incident.

The C.F.D. will NOT turn on fire hydrants or give rides. 

You will not receive confirmation of their attendance. The C.F.D. will make every attempt to honor all Block Party or Special Event requests. Requests MUST be submitted at least 14 days before the tour. Failure to do so may result in the inability to schedule the tour.
