Community Event 4

If you are planning a Special Event to take place in a Boise City park, please review the Boise Parks & Recreation Policies for Event Planners, and Boise City Code Title 5 Chapter 10 and Title 13 Chapter 3.

Requirements for all Special Events:  

All special events must file an  Attendance Estimate Form with the City Clerk to determine their interaction with licensing regulations. For more special event assistance you may visit the  City of Boise Special Events page.

Applications for Special Events must be submitted no earlier than one (1) year prior to the event date and no later than ninety (90) days prior to the event date if beer/wine will be sold or forty-five (45) days prior to the event date otherwise. 

The permit process for using a park for your special event starts with scheduling your event's location, date and time. Submit applications to the Park Special Event Coordinator or City Clerk's Office for processing.  Fees vary according to facilities and event needs. For more information, please contact the Park Special Event Coordinator at (208) 608-7618.
