Special Event Applications/Permits

April 18 Deadline for July-September Events

The City has an application and permitting process in place for special events that require the use of City property and/or City logistical and planning support. This includes quarterly submission deadlines in advance of a planned event so that Staff has ample time to review all requests and manage its finite supply of equipment and staffing while balancing its support of longstanding community events with new and unique event proposals.

For events being planned between October 1 and December 31 of this year, the application deadline is Monday, July 18. For any new events, planners may be required to attend a review meeting, which is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, August 3.

Event planners are encouraged to start their applications early, with the next set of deadlines as follows:

For Events Held Application Deadline Meeting Review Date
January 1, 2023 – March 31 October 17 November 2

A streamlined, online application form has been created, to be used for all event proposals that involve use of public streets, parks or other City property. Separate applications are available for Block Parties, Mobile Demonstrations and Car Washes.

Also new for 2022 is a Park Use Permit for groups wishing to hold small activities in a City park that won’t disrupt typical park uses.

If you have questions about this new process, contact Parks & Recreation at 614-583-5300. For walks and runs, contact the City Manager’s Office, at 614-583-5040.
