When is a Special Event Permit needed?

Special events that require a permit include celebrations, historical reenactments, exhibitions, parades, fairs, festivals, pub crawls, and similar live entertainment events in public and private spaces.

In certain jurisdictions in the D.C. metro area, a special events permit is not required for reoccurring events such as Farmers’ Markets or casual public space use by citizens, visitors, or tourists. Additionally, block parties and demonstrations have their own unique permit requirements.

Are additional Permits required for my special event?

Depending on the location of your special event, you may be subject to additional regulations and permit requirements. For instance, special event permit holders in Arlington, VA, may need to obtain other permits to reserve space, erect tents, reserve parking, serve food, or have open flames on-site at their special event. If any of these scenarios apply to your special event, don’t waste your time trying to navigate this complex process yourself. Contact our experienced Permitting Services team to expedite your special event permit and any subsequent permits required by the jurisdiction.
