Community Event Planning

If you are planning a community event in Cochrane, there are a number of things to consider during planning. We’ve collected information on this page related to permits and resources to help you out.

Festival and event permits

If your event is being hosted in a park, road or venue, you will need a Festival and Event Permit. Festival and Event Permits help prevent scheduling conflicts and ensure the appropriate insurance and licensing are in place.

To apply for a permit, first review the Event Planning Standards and confirm availability with the Community Liaison, Events & Film (403-851-2535). Afterwards, you can apply for the permit online.
