Upcoming City Events

Oct 9 - Fire Department Open House | Public Safety Building | 11 am to 2 pm

The Columbia Heights Fire Department is happy to announce the return of our annual Fire Prevention Week Open House! This year’s theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!™’ from the NFPA. The goal this year is to educate everyone about the different sounds the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. Knowing what to do when an alarm sounds will keep you and your family safe. When an alarm makes noises - a beeping sound or a chirping sound - you must take action.

Join us on Sat, Oct 9, 2021, from 11 am - 2 pm at 825 41st Ave NE Columbia Heights MN, 55421. We will have several community friends and partners to visit and learn how to be safe and answer questions you may have. There will be ice cream, dalmatians, games, and fire demonstrations!

Oct 30 - Truck or Treat | Huset Park | 1-5 pm
Truck or Treat returns for its fourth year Sat, Oct 30, 1-5 pm, at Huset Park East! We'll be going back to the original set-up after running a drive-thru only event in 2020. Kids and their parents can explore a variety of vehicles, including police cars, fire trucks, tow, dump, garbage and mail trucks, and a school bus. In addition to the organizations that provide their vehicles, Columbia Heights and its City departments will also collaborate with community partners such as SACA Food Shelf & Thrift Store, HeightsNEXT, and the Columbia Heights Lions to help make the event possible.

Kids middle-school aged and younger will receive a free treat bag as they leave. Recreation will host Puppet Wagon shows. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume. Pets are welcome, and maybe they can be in costume, too! Food and beverages for sale, and hot cider on site. This is a free event.

Nov 23 - Trivia Night | Murzyn Hall Bar Area | 7-9 pm
Test your knowledge for a chance to win prizes! Four rounds of trivia questions tailored to Columbia Heights residents and local themes. Sign up as a single player or register as a team here. This event takes place in the bar area of Murzyn Hall, where space is limited, so register soon. Prizes include Columbia Heights t-shirts and other merchandise, and gift certificates for local businesses. This will be the City's last 100th Anniversary event of Columbia Heights' Centennial Year.

Note: Don't worry. We won't take your phone at the start of the event or make you turn it off. But we do ask everyone apply the honor system and not use their phones for help in answering trivia questions. Thank you!
