Special Event Permit Applications

The City of Parkland's Code of Ordinances provides the framework and guidance for the issuance of Special Event Pertmits within the City of Parkland. In general, any organized activity impacting city services or involving the use of, or having an impact on public property, public facilities, sidewalks, medians or street areas requires a permit. Please remember that Special Events cannot be advertised until after the permit process has been completed and you receive an approved permit. If you plan to hold you event in a City Park, you will need to contact the City, at (954) 757-4105, to verify availability of the specific facility you are requesting. Submitting the Special Events Permit Application does not guarantee site availability. Permits may not be submitted more than six (6) months in advance, or less than thirty (30) days from the event.

Thank you to all of our sponsors
