Community event permits

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

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