Night to Unite


Keeping Chanhassen a safe community is a partnership effort. Each year, the City of Chanhassen joins thousands of communities nationwide in observing Night to Unite
 (N2U), a statewide event that builds and fosters community bonds between citizens, businesses and public safety entities in local jurisdictions. N2U supports this effort by reminding citizens that their involvement is vital in building a strong and safe community.

Typically, this neighborhood celebration takes place the first Tuesday in August. Community leaders encourage residents to join their neighbors in observing N2U by attending an organized event in their neighborhood, such as a block party. Carver County deputies and city representatives attempt to visit all participating neighborhoods. 

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Night to Unite event was rescheduled to Tuesday, October 6, 2020, but in the interest of keeping the community safe, the City of Chanhassen, Chanhassen Fire Department and Carver County Sheriff's Office will instead host a virtual Night to Unite alternative called Chan Unites. The event will focus on safety and feature safety videos and virtual activities online, including an interactive web-based app created by CFD families can use to learn more about fire safety. 

Residents are encouraged to share photos and videos of what they've learned as well as their own modified gatherings if they'd like to our social media using the tag #ChanUnites. 

The City also invites residents to leave their porch lights on all night as a sign of support for first responders and unity. For more information, call City Hall at 952-227-1100.
