Night to Unite is held annually on the first Tuesday in August. This event encourages neighbors to get outdoors and enjoy each others company as well as to meet members of various city departments and elected city officials. Hot dog cookouts, potlucks, parades and carnivals are held in neighborhoods throughout Red Wing as a part of this national event.
2020 Night to Unite
In the interest of our citizens' health and safety, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Red Wing has canceled participation in the 2020 Night to Unite event planned for Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
We will celebrate Night to Unites return on Tuesday, August 3, 2021.
Night to Unite (National Night Out) is a statewide event that builds and fosters community bonds between citizens, businesses, and public safety organizations. This annual celebration occurs on the first Tuesday in August and gathers neighborhoods and public safety personnel together for an evening to promote safe communities.
Night to Unite has proven to be an effective, inexpensive, and enjoyable opportunity to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships to pursue safer communities. Community benefits often extend beyond this single evening event as neighbors get to know each other and the public safety agencies that serve them.
The Red Wing Police Department looks forward to participating in Night to Unite on Tuesday, August 3, 2021.
