According to City Ordinance, a Special Event is defined as: 'Any festival, ceremony, show, demonstration, exhibition, pageant, transient amusement enterprise, outdoor temporary gathering or similar event, in or on or having substantial impact on any street, park, or other public place in the city.'

All Special Events are required to apply for a Special Event Permit through the City Solicitor's office.

If you plan to have alcohol at your event, you will also need to submit a Temporary ABC License Application.
