Special Events include, but are not limited to, activities which are open to public participation and occur in the public right-of way which in most instances may be defined as a road or sidewalk. Examples of activities requiring a Special Events permit include parades, runs, cycling and walkathons.
Events which occur, in whole or in part, within areas not under the County’s jurisdiction, such as a state park or within the corporate limits of any city or village, require approval from the appropriate government agency. Additionally, a public event held on private property may require a County Amusement License.
Please carefully review the County’s Special Events Permit Guidelines prior to submitting your application. Applications must be submitted at least three (3) weeks prior to the event and include a detailed map of the proposed route. Applicants must also provide adequate insurance coverage.
