Due to the impact of COVID-19 in communities across the nation, the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) has strongly recommended that all National Night Out 2020 areas celebrate on October 6, the first Tuesday in October.

The City wishes to comply with this recommendation and has planned Jacksonville’s National Night for October 6, 2020 at 5 PM at the Riverwalk Crossing Park in Downtown Jacksonville. 

Running with the Law, a 5K race that is an NNO Partner event, is planned for the Saturday before National Night Out, October 3, 2020.

Additional information for vendors and sponsors will be available at JacksonvilleNC.gov/NNO 

“National Night Out is a revered community event and we look forward to continuing to build police-community relationships in these unusual times of COVID-19,” says Public Safety Director, Chief Mike Yaniero.
