Deputy Chief Fire Officer Geoff Sallis said "The Queen's Jubilee is a great excuse for communities to get together and celebrate this special event."
"We are delighted that so many people are holding their own street parties, but we would ask them to take five minutes to look at the advice on our website to make sure their event runs as safely and smoothly as possible."
Councillor Will Windsor-Clive, Cabinet Member for Communities said, "There's a real sense of community spirit in Gloucestershire - you can see that from the number of road closure applications the county council has received."
"Please remember to read the advice issued by our fire and rescue service to make sure that your party can be enjoyed safely by everyone."
