Special Events

Interested in throwing a large gathering or special event? 

If so, and if you answer "yes" to any of the following questions, you will need to apply for a Special Event Permit:

  • Do you need to close or block a street?
  • Are you interested in using a public park, sidewalks or the bike path?
  • Will your event extend outside of your facility onto a public sidewalk or other public right-of-way?
  • Will you be exceeding the noise ordinance (for example: band, after hours)?

Please review the City's Special Event Policy prior to submitting your Special Event Permit Application.  The policy provides important information to consider when planning your event.  Once your application is received, we will help you navigate any processes necessary for holding your event.

If you are expecting a large crowd, you will also need to check the requirements for mass gatherings and submit a Mass Gathering Permit Application to the Scott County Health Department.

Or, are you are more interested in knowing about and attending some of the city's many upcoming events? 

If so, there are resources to help you get connected.
